Bio Medical Engineering
About the Department:
The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in the year 2017 with intake of 60 students. It offers Bachelor progamme in Biomedical Engineering. The department has eminent faculties with precise knowledge in the area of biomedical engineering. The Department also aims to expand its interest towards biomedical research in collaboration with other departments to meet the requirements of health care industry.
About the course:
Biomedical engineering is diversified area which integrates the knowledge of engineering and medicine, intended to support clinicians with knowledge based, timely, and high quality service in a professional and responsible manner in order to improve the patient care in all aspects of technology.
Biomedical engineering has wide space for research in inventing new biomedical equipments for diagnosing various diseases and trauma. Also it expands its vision to devices for therapeutics and biomaterials.
Biomedical instrumentation: Uses electrical, electronics, computer science, measurement principles to develop equipments for providing solution to clinical problems in the areas of diagnosis and therapeutics.
Biomaterials and Artificial organs: Uses chemical and physical properties of materials to develop biocompatible implants and artificial organs to replace the function of diseased and deceased organs of the body.
Biomechanics: Applies mechanical principles such as rigid, deformable and fluid mechanics to human body for analyzing the impacts of forces and moments.
Rehabilitation engineering: is the study of engineering and mechanics to provide assist devices for who recovers from trauma and cognitive impairments.
Biosignal Processing: Uses mathematics, electronics and computer science principles to process on various biosignals and extract useful information about the functionality of human physiology.
Medical image Processing: Uses computer science algorithms in software tools such as MATLAB, to process on medical images to extract useful information and for diagnosis of abnormal tissues.
Radiological Equipments: Uses key principles of physics to scan and image the human body using ionizing and non ionizing radiations.
Medical Photonics: Uses the optical properties of light for medical imaging and surgery.
Neural Networks: Uses artificial intelligence for medical robotics and automation.
Highlights of the department includes industry-institute interactions with eminent healthcare organisations like Philips, Perfint Healthcare, Phoenix Medical Systems and HCL Healthcare. Several consultancy projects in Biomechanics, Biomaterials and Artificial organs have been carried out for overseas clients.
