I would love to start my own biomedical devices company. There are so many applications for this type of engineering, like providing at home medical devices to elderly and rural communities.

What's it all about?

■  Biomedical engineers apply engineering analysis and techniques to problems in medicine and life sciences. They bridge the gap between clinical medicine and the increasingly complex world of medical technologies. By the end of this degree, you will be able to develop systems to maintain and enhance life, design body parts or tissues, develop artificial organs, improve robotic surgery, invent health technologies and more.

What does it include?

■  This is a masters degree taken concurrently with an undergraduate engineering degree in Bioinformatics, Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronic, Software, Telecommunications or Materials Science (offered by the Faculty of Science). To put it another way, its a big time saver, merging the four-year bachelor degree and the 18 month masters degree into a single five-year full-time course.

Where will you work?

■  As such a vital industry for the future wellbeing of mankind, we're seeing an ever widening number of career pathways. We see graduates working in hospitals, regulatory bodies, research institutions, tertiary education, medical device manufacturing and the biotechnology industry.
