Academic requirements for program completion

Total units required

320 units

Program duration

4 years full-time or part-time equivalent up to 10 years maximum.

International students studying this program on campus are required to enrol full time to comply with their student visa requirements and complete their study in the standard minimum program duration. International students requiring enrolment advice should review the program plan corresponding to the semester and year of commencement and can contact their Program Advisor at ProgramAdvice@newcastle.edu.au

Program requirements

In the Bachelor of Medical Engineering (Honours) program students are required to complete 320 units, which is comprised of:

  • 140 units of core courses;
  • 20 units of mathematics core courses;
  • 120 units towards a major. Students can choose one of four majors:
    • Medical Devices Major: 100 units of compulsory courses and 20 units of directed courses; 
    • Medical Signal Analysis Major: 100 units of compulsory courses and 20 units of directed courses;
    • Medical Computing Major: 100 units of compulsory courses and 20 units of directed courses;
    • Medical Biomechanics Major: 110 units of compulsory courses and 10 units of directed courses; and 
  • 40 units of elective courses.

1000 level unit maximum

No more than 120 units can be taken at 1000 level; and at least 40 units must be taken at each level from the 2000 level and above for this program. Depending on your major the number of units you can undertake at the 1000 level are restricted. Please be aware of this maximum when selecting your elective pathway. For students in all majors electives must be chosen at the 2000 level and above.

Additionally, students in the Medical Computing major are permitted to select 10 units of directed courses (ELEC1710) at the 1000 level or above. Elective courses must be chosen at the 2000 level and above.

Elective Pathway

An elective pathway gives students the opportunity to broaden their skills and knowledge in their own or another engineering discipline; or specialise in areas such as business, maths or science; or undertake study overseas. Students should be aware of the 120 unit maximum for 1000 level unit courses when selecting their elective pathway.

Mathematics Pathways

Students with a Band 3 or 4 in the NSW HSC course Extension 1 Mathematics OR who have completed NSW HSC Extension 2 Mathematics (or their interstate/international equivalents) are able to complete the higher level MATH1210/MATH1220 Mathematical Discovery 1/Mathematical Discovery 2 course in lieu of MATH1110/MATH1120.

Students who do not meet the enrolment requisite for MATH1110 must take MATH1002. Students in all majors undertaking this pathway will be permitted to take 130 units at the 1000 level. For these students MATH1002 will count for 10 units of electives with 30 units total remaining. the remaining electives (30 units total) must be taken at the 2000 level and above. Additionally, students in the Medical Computing major must also choose directed courses at the 2000 level and above.

Additional Information: 

  • Students wishing to undertake this program on a part-time basis are advised to contact the program convenor for advice on optimum selection of courses for part-time enrolment.
  • Please note that if you undertake courses that are not in your approved program, you will be liable for additional fees for those courses. This is in addition to the fees associated with your normal program of study.

Electives

Students who do not meet the enrolment requisite for MATH1110 must take MATH1002. Students in all majors undertaking this pathway will be permitted to take 130 units at the 1000 level. For these students MATH1002 will count for 10 units of electives, the remaining electives (30 units total) must be taken at the 2000 level and above. Additionally, students in the Medical Computing major must also choose directed courses at the 2000 level and above.

Complete 40 units of electives to fulfil the requirements of the program. Electives can be used to extend and complement your core studies with more courses in the same field of study, or from areas that might be of interest to you. Electives can be chosen from all courses available at the University that do not have any other conditions (such as a course requisite) applied to them.

Honours

The Bachelor of Medical Engineering (Honours) program uses the WAM as a measure for determining Honours. Please refer to the Bachelor Honours Policy for further detailed information.


Additional information

All students can access additional learning development mechanisms provided by the Centre for Teaching and Learning.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can draw on the assistance and support provided by the Indigenous Student Support and Development service through The Wollotuka Institute.


International students

All International Students enrolled in the program will be provided with an orientation to familiarise them with the rules, expectations, facilities and services offered by the University. Please visit our International Students website to find out more about the support services available to international students.


Additional support

AccessAbility provides advice and reasonable adjustments to Students with a medical or health condition or disability. If you require adjustments to undertake your program, contact the Student Support Advisors - AccessAbility before semester or early in the semester. They will work with the Faculty or School to ensure that this happens in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. More information is available online.
