To be a part of the fast changing medical devices industry in India and help India raise to the status of a global leader in health care.
B.E in Medical Electronics
Medical Electronics engineering that combines the knowledge in medicine and engineering and is one of the extensively growing fields of the era where people prefer best and precise medical practices. Medical electronics will be the future as the health sector industry is going to witness a boom. A medical electronics engineer is the doctor of the equipments without which the multi specialty hospital, a surgeon, a doctor will be helpless.

Course Out Line:
The course curriculum lays a sound foundation in electronics and computer programming. And an understanding of the origin of various human physiological signals, knowledge about human anatomy and modelling of the human physiological systems gives a complete understanding of the human system as an engineer. The instrumentation and measurement of biomedical signals and the analysis of the measured signals using computing tools like LabVIEW and MATLAB provides an opportunity for the students to innovate and find solutions to the challenges in medical field.
The department has well qualified faculty with profound research experience in the field and supported by trained and skilled technical personal. The laboratory has the most sophisticated equipment for real time data acquisition for most of the physiological signals and the supporting software for analysis. The students also supported with software that facilitates students to innovate and carryout projects in interaction with the industry. The institute in collaboration with medical college hospitals exposes the students to the state of the art technology equipments through short term and long term training and internship.
The medical electronics industry is witnessing an exponential growth because of the huge growth in Health Care industry. The current affordability and accessibility of the products in medical technology to the large Indian population is restricted because of the high cost of import. The current focus is to domestically manufacture the equipment to suit the Indian patients and Indian economy. The presence of A class hospitals in all tier II & III cities doubles the need for affordability and accessibility. Medical Electronics is now under global focus as the health care industry must reach a population with diverse economy in any region.
The medical electronics industry includes personal medical devices, bio-physical monitoring, life support systems, implants, bionics in rehabilitation of physically challenged, embedded technology in neurosciences, Cardiac Sciences. Now Tele medicine and e-health is gaining potential which can usher in a revolution in taking the healthcare to rural areas.
Medical Electronics engineers are the one who design devices and measures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Many do research, along with life scientists, chemists, and medical scientists, to develop and evaluate systems and products such as artificial organs, prostheses (artificial devices that replace missing body parts), instrumentation, medical information systems, health management and care delivery systems. In Medicine and engineering the research is multidimensional be it robotic surgery, telemedicine, artificial organs and implants, 3 D printing of organs, the imaging and diagnostic process, patient data mining and predictive analysis, deep learning, establishing standards for medical data communication, data security, mobile health and etc. The students can take up their education to a higher research based on their interest in any of the allied fields.
This is the era of Internet of Things. Current technological ecosystem and infrastructure offers The Internet of things (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. Its a concept that has the potential to impact how we live and track health. Medical Electronics plays an important role in making IoT more meaningful. With growing demands in wearables and connected medical device industry, a medical electronics engineer has several opportunities to pick from including clinical engineering, wearable device innovation, medical device integration engineer, medical device regularity and compliance engineer and so on.
A medical electronic engineer finds immense possibilities and multiple avenues in terms of employment opportunities in medical equipment manufacturing companies, sales & service sector of medical devices, IT companies which deal with medical software. Biomedical Engineer in hospital is another area where there is an unlimited demand.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Program:
