Biomedical Engineering study tracks

Electives become available in Part IV of Biomedical Engineering, and are a chance for you to target the focus of your degree.

These are suggestions only, based on what has worked for previous students who have wanted to focus in particular areas. We cannot guarantee any particular combination of classes will work in the timetable.

If you prefer to keep your electives across a wider range of areas, you do not have to choose a track at all.

Regardless of what electives you take, your 'major' in your BE(Hons) is your specialisation - Biomedical Engineering.
