Postgraduate coursework programs in the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering are aimed at graduates in engineering, science or medicine who want specialist knowledge and training in the application of engineering principles in health care technologies.
The main objective of our postgraduate coursework programs is to develop a mutual understanding between engineering and medical professionals to facilitate the application of engineering analysis and concepts in medicine. Emphasis is on the life sciences in general but there is a primary focus on clinical medicine.
On completion of a program, candidates with a medical background would be expected to have an appreciation and working knowledge of engineering problem-solving procedures and of the time, effort and cost involved in reaching these solutions.
Similarly, candidates with an engineering background would be expected to understand the ramifications of applying engineering principles to problem-solving in both clinical medicine and basic biology.
Whether you choose to undertake a postgraduate coursework program straight after your undergraduate studies, a few years into your career or as part of continuous professional development, it will help you to:
