During your biomedical studies, you will complete subjects in a variety of disciplines such as engineering science, engineering mathematics, engineering design, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials science and biomechanics.
In your first two years, you will study the fundamentals of engineering, physics, mathematics, and the basics of biology, anatomy and physiology. As you progress into third and fourth years, you will become career-ready through major design projects that mirror the work of practising biomedical engineers.
You will also have the opportunity to design creative solutions through inspiring and sustainable design-and-build projects and take part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge, a humanitarian-focused subject offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.
Teaching methods within this biomedical engineering degree include lectorial, seminar, tutorial, workshop, practical and laboratory sessions, site visits and provision of online materials. Of particular importance is the time spent in practice, laboratory-based and work integrated learning activities that will develop your employability skills and capabilities.
Assessment may come in the form of class tests, quizzes, essays or reports, oral class presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects, practical assignments, reflective journals and timed assessments.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
