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.
