We set new global benchmarks in biomedical engineering research and education. Practice-focused and with deep industry connection, we’re engineering a bright new future for human health.
The challenges in human health – now and into the future – are complex and abundant.
Biomedical engineering is driving revolutionary technological advances, transforming healthcare delivery and extending the quality and longevity of lives. The UTS School of Biomedical Engineering is a dynamic nexus for researchers, students and industry to collaborate, discover and innovate.
Ranked well above world standard for excellence in biomedical engineering, our transdisciplinary research is breaking new ground every day in areas such as medical devices, translational medicine and genomics. Our deep industry connections mean that our research outcomes are relevant, transformative and commercially applicable.
Our practice-based, industry-focused teaching and learning is at the forefront of next-generation biomedical engineering. Our graduates are agile and ready to lead, problem-solve and innovate in rapidly changing environments.
Collaboration on research projects means that the research has a greater chance of real world impact, and that organisations reap infinite rewards. We partner with industry, government and community on research projects to solve complex challenges and develop market-ready solutions.
If you’re studying for a career in industry, it makes sense that you should spend real time in industry gaining practical experience and connections. Every UTS Biomedical Engineering student has access to quality internships, industry-linked capstone research projects, mentoring and industry lectures.
We nurture strong relationships with industry, whether it’s to boost the impact of our research or to ensure our teaching and learning programs meet the needs of our students and the industries they’re going to transform. Our diverse family of partners include biomedical technology leaders such as Toshiba Medical and ResMed, eminent research institutions like The Garvan Institute of Medical Research, corporations such as GalaxoSmithKline and Qantas, and government agencies like the Defence Science and Technology Organisation.
Biomedical engineers are changing lives, industries and the world. Our research in this dynamic, rapidly-changing field covers areas as diverse as:
Studying biomedical engineering opens the door to a world of inspiring directions and opportunities.
