We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

We are currently working to resolve an issue where some unit outline links are unavailable. If the link to your unit outline does not appear below, please use the link in your Canvas site. If no link is available on your Canvas site, please contact your unit coordinator.

Unit of study_

BMET9921: Biomedical Engineering Technology

This unit of study provides an introduction to the field of biomedical engineering, from the point of view of the engineering and the global biomedical industry itself. After completion of this unit, students will have a clear understanding of what biomedical engineering is, both from the engineering perspective and the commercial/industry perspective.

1000-level biology, 1000-level materials science and some engineering design

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. present research to peers through seminars and group discussions
  • LO2. collaborate with project stakeholders from outside the engineering domain
  • LO3. understand the biomedical engineering industry both locally and globally
  • LO4. articulating the regulatory, legal, and ethical considerations in relation to biomedical device design and use (e.g. in clinical trials), as well as intellectual property issues
  • LO5. demonstrate the ability work cohesively in a team, integrating inputs from different sources in the pursuit of a design solution
  • LO6. understand and be able to plan the biomedical design process, including design iteration and testing protocols
  • LO7. create a detailed design brief for a biomedical device that addresses a specific problem, with reference to international standards
  • LO8. use evidence to justify methodological and design choices with reference to prior art
  • LO9. understand the therapeutic, rehabilitation, and clinical contexts in which biomedical devices are required to operate, and the role of regulation within these contexts.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.
