Students who complete the Bioengineering Systems major will be able to rigorously integrate the fundamental mathematics of systems modelling with biology, chemistry and physics in the formulation and solution of problems involving biomedical systems.
More specifically, core skills and knowledge that will be developed include:
- fundamental scientific comprehension that will lead to accurate mathematical modelling of biological and engineering systems,
- analytical and abstract thinking,
- problem-solving and design skills,
- ability to carry out laboratory experiments to confirm possible solutions to complex problems.
At all levels of this major, we will ensure the development of excellent communication skills that enable our graduates to deliver complex scientific information in a clear and concise fashion. The Bioengineering Systems major will open up pathways for students leading to accredited professional or scientific research careers in biomedical engineering (through further study in the Master of Engineering (Biomedical), applied mathematics, applied science, teaching, management and finance.
