CRICOS: 00116K Biomedical Engineer: Design products and procedures that solve medical problems. These include artificial organs, prostheses, instrumentation, medical information systems, and health management and care delivery systems.
CRICOS: 00116K Treatment: 1.Doctor diagnoses and treat patient diseases. 2.Biomedical Scientist analyses the blood from a patient so that the doctor knows how to diagnose and treat. 3.Biomedical Engineer design the equipment used to analyse the blood.
CRICOS: 00116K Heart Transplant: 1.Biomedical Scientist determines blood flow and heart functions 2.Biomedical Engineer uses this information to design the artificial heart 3.Doctor carries out surgery and monitors patient health
CRICOS: 00116K Replacing Damaged Skin 1.Biomedical Scientist establishes how the artificial skin will be tolerated by the body. 2.Biomolecular Engineer designs, operates and maintains the process to grow the synthetic skin (tissue engineering). 3.Doctor operates to graft the artificial skin to the body.
CRICOS: 00116K Repairing a Damaged Hip 1.Biomedical Scientist establishes how the hip joint functions in the body 2.Biomedical Engineer designs the prosthesis (artificial hip) 3.Doctor operates on the patient and monitors the recovery
CRICOS: 00116K Repairing Damaged Bones 1.Biomedical Scientist establishes how the bones function in the body. 2.Biomedical Engineer designs the equipment to be used during surgery to ensure correct alignment. 3.Doctor operates on the patient and monitors the recovery.

CRICOS: 00116K What is Biomedical Engineering ? Biomedical engineering is the application of techniques drawn from engineering to the analysis and solution of problems in biology and medicine. Biomedical engineering applies the techniques of all classical engineering disciplines to problems encountered in living systems. BIOMEDICAL Engineering
CRICOS: 00116K Increasing focus on health issues, aging populations around the world – growing expectations of the delivery of better medical devices & equipment designed by Biomedical Engineers. ‘Employment of Biomedical Engineers is expected to grow faster than all occupations in US through to 2012’ (Source: US Department of Labour – Bureau of Labor Statistics – www.bls.gov) BIOMEDICAL Engineering
CRICOS: 00116K Four Programs : biocellular engineering bioinfomatics biomechanics biosignals processing First two years largely common (strong links with Biomedical Science in early years) BIOMEDICAL Engineering
