This concurrent degree program is specifically designed for undergraduate students wishing to pursue a career in Biomedical Engineering. This allows students to enter an integrated program which provides both the prerequisite engineering education and the specialist Biomedical Engineering training. Students are expected to perform at a Credit average (65%) or better in their first three years to be permitted to progress to the Masters component of a concurrent degree program. Students who at the end of Year 3, do not satisfy the requirements for progression to the Masters component may complete the Bachelor of Engineering. At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering, students may enrol in the Graduate Diploma in Biomedical Engineering with advanced standing for the (postgraduate) biomedical courses previously completed. Students may elect at any time to revert to the BE program. If, once entering a concurrent degree program, students wish to revert to the normal BE programs they will need to satisfy the requirements for the BE as set out in the relevant sections of the Handbook. Since the concurrent degree program introduces courses additional to those in the BE, the student reverting to the normal BE program may require up to an additional year to achieve a BE after completing years 3 or 4 of the concurrent degree program.
