Biomedical Engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that enables engineers to combine engineering principles with biological and medical sciences.
Developments in biomedical engineering provide vital skills and knowledge to enable change to the national health system and improve people’s lives, for example, developments in imaging, instrumentation, robotics, scaffolding, materials engineering, computer science and prosthetics.
Students will study areas related to mechanical, electrical, artificial intelligence (e.g. evolutionary computation, neural network, fuzzy logic, machine learning) and aspects of modern biomedical systems.
Graduates will develop a solid understanding of critical issues involved in developing biomedical systems in a global economy and make significant technological contributions to biomedical systems, both in Australia and abroad.
You will study a common first year allowing you to learn more about engineering and its different fields before deciding which discipline to study.
The common first year provides you with sound fundamentals in mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computing, engineering science and communication, mechanics, materials and fluids.
You then focus on your chosen major study from second year.
Your degree includes a 12-week hands-on industry placement. You may gain credit for relevant work experience, either in Australia or overseas, by participating in the Professional Options Program.
Engineers work in a variety of industries, for example:
Construction, mining, resources, aeronautical, electronics, engineering management, telecommunications, power generation and distribution, renewable energy, aerospace, water resource management, robotics and manufacturing, railroad and shipbuilding.
What you will study
As an engineering student at UOW you will have access to fully-equipped laboratories and the latest computer-aided software that is used in modern industrial workplaces.
The lecturers encourage you to approach them and get involved in industry projects and learning opportunities so you get the most out of your university education.
The engineering students are trained through practical learning experiences including:
After completing the common first year you will study specific subjects in the areas of:
Anatomy and Physiology, Biomedical Instrumentation and Design, Biomedical Physics, Sensors and Actuators, Biomechanical Basis for Human Movement, Mechanical Design of Biomedical Devices, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Artificial Organs and Implants, Ethics and Practices, among others.

Due to the current impacts of COVID-19 on in-person testing centres, UOW is accepting Alternative English tests for 2022 intakes.
The requirements for accepting these tests are:
If you do not already meet the English requirements for your chosen course, you can complete an English course at UOW College Australia. UOW also recognises English language courses offered by some other colleges in Sydney.
A guide to the length of English course you may need to study is provided below. Please note that this table should only be considered a guide. Lower scores in Writing may mean that you'll need to study English for longer.
|Score at time of application||Estimated time required to reach IELTS entry score (weeks)|
* for students with 6.0 overall, but 5.5 in either reading or writing
# for students with 5.5 overall, but less than 5.0 in reading or writing
Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia.
In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications.
This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.
Foundation Studies is a university preparation course specifically designed for international students who have not completed secondary schooling, or who have not met the direct entry requirements for a UOW Bachelor degree.
The course involves a stream of subjects relevant to your chosen UOW degree. When you enrol in the program, you will be allocated to a relevant stream of study.
You will develop study skills and habits, including time management, essay writing, group work and presentation skills; and become familiar with the academic standards and expectations at university.
Successful completion of Foundation Studies provides guaranteed entry to most UOW undergraduate Bachelor degrees.
