BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

Biomedical engineers are just as essential to the healthcare industry as doctors and nurses. You can make your mark in this growing sector by working with your peers to develop the next generation of smart medical devices for clinical engineering. This is an interdisciplinary course that provides you with integrated training in biological techniques and biomedical instrumentation. These include BioMEMS (Biomedical Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems), microfluidics, flexible hybrid electronics for healthcare wearables, smart healthcare devices using artificial intelligence, and intelligent wearable healthcare sensors. The knowledge and skills you gain here will empower you to address the needs of the rapidly expanding Medical Technology (MedTech), Biomedical and healthcare industries.


Training in multiple areas of bio-science and engineering gives you greater flexibility and more options.


Broad-based curriculum allows you to pursue further studies in diverse areas including life sciences, medical research, IT and engineering.


A broad range of employment opportunities await you in the healthcare industry.

Our Student Projects

This project aimed to develop a prosthetic arm that has a reduced number of part counts, is more cost effective and allows the beneficiary to detect applied force, versus prosthetic arms that are commercially available today. A new set of prosthetic movements would also be designed through compliance mechanisms using CAD modelling.

This project received a Major Project Merit award.

Sleep apnea is a potentially life threatening condition. In this project, our students developed a software to gather sleep data and display them as waveforms in a user-friendly interface. The software would allow clinicians to analyse and manipulate the waveforms, including zooming in and out, add markers, annotate sleep conditions, and make comparisons between waveforms. There is also an analytics module in the software to identify possible sleep apnea conditions from the data and auto annotate in the waveforms for the clinician to review and update as needed.

This project received a Major Project Commendation award.

Sleep apnea patients suffer from low-quality sleep, and also affect others around them with their snores. The condition can lead to serious health issues in the long-term, including high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. The objective of this project is to develop an oral device which can help patients with obstructive sleep apnea or long-term snoring conditions. It consist of a mouth guard and a tongue anchor, which prevents the tongue from rolling back to the epiglottis and obstructing the airway. This device aims to help the patient achieve quality sleep as well as minimise disruptions to others.
