Master of Engineering (Biomedical) - On Campus - Bedford Park - South Australia

  • Objectives
    The primary aims of this course are to provide significant and substantial advanced knowledge of and skill in the field of Biomedical Engineering including in-depth knowledge of and skills in a specific area or application of Biomedical Engineering, obtained through a combination of coursework and project.Learning outcomesThe expected learning outcomes for this degree include: * an advanced level of knowledge of the Engineering and Biomedical principles underlying the application of Biomedical engineering; * expertise in a range of technical skills used in the application of Biomedical Engineering; * well developed skills in written and oral communication, problem solving and critical thinking, and, * the knowledge and skills to undertake research and development; involving the selection of appropriate methodology, the analysis and review of research literature and the completion of an advanced development or similar research-oriented project.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants normally must hold an approved undergraduate Engineering degree with appropriate electronic content, or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution. Some basic knowledge of biology and chemistry will be assumed. An applicant who has not previously studied electronics may be required to undertake appropriate bridging studies.The Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Biomedical) and are subsequently admitted to the Masters degree will be awarded 18 units of credit. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Biomedical) and are subsequently admitted to the Masters degree will be awarded 36 units of credit.Students with relevant professional work experience in a Biomedical Engineering related profession (including substantial and high level involvement in research or technical aspects relevant to biomedical engineering) may be granted credit up to a maximum of 18 units (ie. credit towards the Graduate Certificate component of the award).Students who have completed an Australian University Engineering (four year or longer) degree in Biomedical and Electronic Engineering with honours may be granted credit up to a maximum of 36 units.Students who complete the Flinders University Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical and Electronics) or the Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) with Honours may receive up to 36 units of credit towards the Masters degree, and may complete both programs in 5 years or the equivalent part-time.
  • Academic title
    Master of Engineering (Biomedical)
  • Course description
     The Master of Engineering (Biomedical) is a 72-unit program offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering on a Commonwealth Supported basis.

    The course articulates with the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Biomedical) and the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Biomedical), and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards.

    Candidates who have completed either of these courses are awarded credit for related topics.
