A Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical Engineering) (Honours) was the perfect way for Grace Marconi to combine her interests in medicine, patient care and problem solving.
Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical Engineering) (Honours)
I knew that whatever I did in life, I wanted to be able to help people and to have an impact on people in a life-changing way.
Biomedical engineering gives me the opportunity to possibly help people and be able to enhance their quality of life every day.
Compared to other universities, RMIT has a huge focus on practical and project-based learning, and that really suits my academic style. In doing a course that covered such a broad spectrum of specialised areas, I knew I would be able to explore every area of the biomedical engineering field and find the niche that I enjoyed the most. All of that, and the facilities available, made RMIT an easy choice for me.
I have even been able to complete internships at Polytechnique Montreal in Canada and with the St Vincent’s Department of Medical Research. Both these internship have been incredible experiences and allowed me to learn so much in terms of biomedical engineering, professional practices, and postgraduate research. I’ve also had real industry experience, preparing me for the workforce and providing me with direction for my career after I graduate.
