As a Biomedical Engineer, you’ll examine medical problems and solve them by applying your engineering knowledge. Sitting at the intersection of technology and human biology, Biomedical Engineering applies the latest developments in computing, robotics and nanotechnology to medicine.
A Biomedical Engineer analyses and designs solutions to problems in biology and medicine to improve people's lives. Interested in humans and machines? This is the path for you.
UNSW researchers unveil prototype device that can directly 3D print living cells onto internal organs and potentially be used as an all-in-one endoscopic surgical tool.
A multi-disciplinary team at UNSW has found a way to convert nerve impulses into light, opening the way for more scalable neural implants.
Making stem cells from a patient’s adult cells – rather than human embryos – is one of the holy grails in modern medicine treatments. New research brings us two steps closer.
Smart textiles utilising artificial muscle fibres have been produced by a team from UNSW Medical Robotics Lab.
We have invested in a range of world-class research facilities and labs to help us focus on solving some of the most pressing health challenges. These include advanced imaging as well as medical and surgical robotics.
Covering a wide range of important areas within biomedical engineering, our research focuses on such topics as cell technologies, neural interfaces, cancer nanotechnology and telemonitoring.
Our Health and Safety Committee enables our staff to contribute to decisions affecting their: health, safety, and welfare, proposed changes to the work environment, processes and practices.
