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.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
