Undergraduate study in Biomedical Engineering

What can you study in Biomedical Engineering?

A Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Biomedical Engineering is your first step towards a rewarding career. Core topics in this specialisation include:

  • Biological modelling, the use of mathematics, physiology, and computational tools to gain information on the biological functions of living organisms
  • Bioinstrumentation, the development of devices for recording and processing biological signals, and for controlling biological functions
  • Experimental methodologies towards gathering usable data on the structure, function and properties of living organisms and tissues

Expanding your knowledge beyond undergraduate study may involve pursuing a masters or PhD programme in Bioengineering, potentially under supervision of researchers from the Department of Engineering Science, the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, or a combination of both.
