Could an engineer help perfect an Olympic swimmer's stroke, a cricketer's drive or a Wimbledon winner's serve?
The new Bachelor of Engineering (Sport and Biomedical) will assist to develop and improve systems and strategies for performance in the sporting, healthcare, rehabilitation and medical industries.
The degree is the first of its kind in the Australian tertiary system and meets the growing demand for trained sports and biomedical engineers to help athletes train smarter and repair the human body.
Griffith's engineering programs are known for their innovation and practical relevance, and mix leading-edge research with hands-on experience in state-of-the-art laboratories. Students work within some of the most advanced teaching and research facilities in Australia, with access to the latest technology.
The university is strongly linked with a range of companies and all students are placed into industry with our partners for a complete semester in final year. This provides invaluable real world experience and excellent employment opportunities. Opportunities even exist to take this placement overseas.
Students will develop sport and biomedical engineering and implementation skills needed for a career in leading-edge, fields such as athletic assessment and training, patient and sports rehabilitation, design of sporting equipment and developing technology for health and rehabilitation systems.
