Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (Honours)

Imagine, design and build new technologies that transform the future of healthcare and change millions of lives for the better by studying biomedical engineering. You’ll bridge the gap between medicine and technology to create new types of diagnostics, monitoring tools and therapies, and build game-changing medical instruments and devices.

Save people’s lives by building a new diagnostic tool that identifies deadly diseases much faster and more accurately than before. Restore function to the body with new biomaterials that can repair and regenerate cells in ways that were previously unthinkable. Apply AI principles to advanced monitoring tools that pick up potential problems quicker than a human ever could. Or, build your own global start-up in the growing med-tech field.  Whatever you do, you’ll make a powerful impact on patients’ treatment, recovery and quality-of-life as a biomedical engineer.

At Monash, you’ll be equipped with strong clinical, technical and regulatory foundations in professional biomedical engineering practice, taught by leading academics in physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, materials science, electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering. With our network of industry partners, you’ll have opportunities to build your career and gain practical experience before you graduate, while the Australian-first Victorian Heart Hospital, located on the Clayton campus and opening in 2022, will offer exciting opportunities to pursue biomedical engineering research.
