Biomedical Engineering and Health Technology
Biomedical Engineering impacts on the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. Electronics is a key technology behind some of the greatest biomedical advances that have improved many people’s lives.
Breaking the boundaries between engineering and biology, biomedical engineers develop innovative technical solutions at the forefront of medicine.
"It was such a buzz to see a recipient who was previously deaf hear with the new Nucleus 5 speech processor at Cochlear. We had all worked really hard as a team to develop this product, and as an added bonus the product had better reliability and hearing performance than we had expected." Past graduate Steve Winnall
Students commencing our internationally recognized Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) in 2016 will now have the option of undertaking a major specializing in Biomedical Engineering for the final 2 years.
Our students have also been involved with a number of biomedical engineering and heath technology related projects include:
- Exploring RF Energy Harvesting for Wearable Sensors
- Design And Development of a New Respiratory Monitor for Detection of Sleep Apnoea
- Brain Computer Interface Control for Biomedical Applications
- Human Activity Recognition to Support Independent Living
- Analysis Of Heart Sound Signals using the Wavelet Transform
Working with health technologies is one of many areas our graduates have worked in.
