Rahul Ratwatte chose to study RMIT’s Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) (Hons.) because he was interested in the opportunities presented by artificial limbs and organs to improve quality of life.
Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) (Honours)
I hope to be involved in cutting-edge research, to develop durable, inexpensive engineering solutions for those living with disadvantage. I’m passionate about helping those with access to the pinnacles of research and those who struggle day to day.
I’m passionate about helping all people, those with access to the pinnacles of research and those who may struggle day to day.
I was interested in the opportunities presented by artificial limbs and organs to enhance the human body and improve quality of life.
The program at RMIT had recently undergone some changes and I was excited by the new structure and study options available.
The most important skills that I have learned so far have been critical thinking and how best to apply my knowledge in order to solve real-world problems.
I became involved in Engineering World Health, an engineering organisation focused on developing engineering solutions to health issues across the world. We founded the first chapter in Melbourne.
It’s allowed me to integrate my studies and apply them in the world.
My favourite subject was Engineering Mathematics A because the lecturer was the best I’d ever had. He made the subject interesting and relevant to my future study path.
I’d encourage prospective students to make an effort to seek out staff outside of assigned hours. They are always willing to help and share their knowledge.
I hope to travel and work overseas and look forward to going on exchange for a semester in the coming years.
When I graduate, I’d like to enter the research world. I hope to be involved in cutting-edge research, developing durable, inexpensive engineering solutions for those living with disadvantage.
