About the Department

"Biomedical Engineering" is an application of all classical 'engineering principles' to solve clinical problems in medical and surgery. Biomedical engineers work with other healthcare professionals as members of a team. Employment opportunities for biomedical engineers exist in industry, government, universities, medical schools and hospitals.

Vision

To address specific Grand Challenges of Medicine by making technology affordable and accessible by all sectors of the society through design and Fabrication of cost effective Biomedical Instruments. A realization of this vision will enable the rational design of therapeutic strategies and devices and enhance our ability to interpret diagnostic information.

Mission

  • To discover and develop advanced health diagnostic tools to detect and analyze health problems earlier, cheaper, and more accurately.
  • Fabrication of Biomedical Instruments at affordable cost to the society.
  • To contribute to the society using the unique competencies provided by the educational experiences of the Biomedical Engineers.

Academics

This program combines the academic & practical exposure required to pursue a career in the bio-medical field. Modules of this program train the student to plan, design, install, operate, and maintain complex systems that help medical practitioners in diagnosis and treatment of varied diseases.

Research Focus

Research activities help the faculty to intellectually stimulate the young minds. Research in the department is focused on drug designing and development, protein purification and proteomics. Thrust is given for submission of research proposals to funding agencies such as DBT, DST, CSIR and DRDO. Faculty are involved in student projects, internally funded pilot projects, externally funded projects and multi-institutional collaborative projects with research institutions in India and abroad.

Industrial Connection

Students are encouraged to undergo industrial training during the course of their study. Eminent resource persons from Industrial Units and institutions of higher learning are periodically invited to the Department for special lecturers on topics of current interest. The department also has an active clinical/industry partnership program that builds rapport with industry sources and focuses on maintaining contact with them. These contacts ensure students have no trouble when they seek practical exposure.
