This double degree is designed for undergraduate students wishing to pursue a career in either Engineering or Biomedical Engineering.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) will provide you with a solid background in mathematics, natural sciences and computing which give you knowledge and skills in whichever engineering discipline specialisation you choose.

Biomedical Engineering applies engineering principles to the development of technologies and solutions in a range of healthcare-related fields, including implantable bionics, drug delivery systems, medical imaging, radiotherapy, orthopaedic devices, robotic surgery, cell and tissue engineering, physical rehabilitation and others.

This dual degree is currently offered for select specialisations only.
