Medical Engineering Degree Launch
Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 05:30 pm
Celebrate the launch of UON's brand-new Bachelor of Medical Engineering degree, which we will be offering from 2018.
Medical engineers are at the forefront of providing innovative solutions to healthcare problems. They bring their creativity, critical thinking, and complex problem solving skills to developing and improving technology and human systems in medical settings.
In this four-year Honours degree, students will get to choose from 4 majors:
- Medical devices
- Medical biomechanics
- Medical signal analysis
- Medical computing
Come along to learn more about our new degree and the fascinating majors available. You’ll also get to hear from some of our experts in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment on the amazing medical engineering projects they are working on.
Engineering student, Rebecca Sykes, spent January working on the development of an artificial pancreas that could change the lives of the millions of people living with diabetes.
Working with control systems expert Laureate Professor Graham Goodwin, Bec explored how control systems can be used to overcome the issues associated with blood glucose regulation in Type 1 diabetics.
“This research scholarship allowed me to explore an area of engineering that I had never experienced. It was an incredible opportunity to work with some amazing people, and see the real world application of what I learn throughout my degree,” says Bec.
Bec will be sharing her experience from working on this medical engineering project at the launch.
