Bachelor of Biomedical Physics

University of Technology Sydney

The Bachelor of Biomedical Physics is a multi-disciplinary degree that combines both biomedical science with physics applications. Some of the most challenging and rewarding applications of physics are in the area of biomedical physics. There is a broad range of applications for biomedical physics in areas such as radiation oncology, medical imaging and radiation safety. Knowledge of biomedical physics can be applied to instrument development, from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to simple glucose monitors or therapeutic agents based on nanoparticles. This course provides students with skills and expertise that equip them to participate in the rapidly growing area at the interface between physics and biomedicine. Students gain advanced experimental, analytical and computational skills as well as an understanding of how the body works at a cellular and organ level. Students explore the biomedical applications of physics, ranging from the use of nanoparticles as diagnostic and therapeutic agents to medical imaging and diagnostic instrumentation. Career options include positions in radiation oncology, medical imaging, radiation safety, imaging technology and the medical instrumentation industry. The course also provides a pathway to postgraduate programs in medicine or medical physics.
