Hi Ernadia Faizzahtul Nabeela,

Biomedical science and biomedical engineering overlap in many ways but essentially the main focus is different. Biomedical science is rooted more in research opportunities and emphasises subjects such as human anatomy, genetics, microbiology, human development, and immunology. Research and observation is the focus of biomedical science.

Biomedical engineering combines the biology and medical knowledge with engineering principles with the purpose of creating devices or procedures for those who seek medical treatment. Thus the course would focus strongly on subjects such as advanced mathematics, physics and chemistry, which are needed in constructing biomedical devices and procedures. Application is the main focus in biomedical engineering.

Hope this helps to clear up the two!

Hello Del,

Yes, you are able to apply for engineering courses, but only for certain universities depending on their entry requirements. For example, biomedical engineering in IMU requires you to have 2 subjects from a list of Biology/Chemistry/Physics/Maths. Some universities require you to have physics, but some do not and only focus on your CGPA. We would suggest that you try to apply for biomedical engineering or chemical engineering, as you have your basics in biology and chemistry. However, if you find that you are also interested in other engineering courses and the university offers it without a requirement in physics, you can go ahead too.

Hope this helps :)
