The department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), started in June 2009 offering M.E-BMI (Biomedical Instrumentation) program and later the undergraduate B.Tech Biomedical Engineering program was introduced in 2014. Biomedical Engineering is a discipline that integrates the knowledge core of traditional engineering and modern biology to solve problems pertaining to human health. There is an increasing demand for biomedical engineers as they play a greater role in analyzing a problem from both an engineering and biological perspective to anticipate the difficulties in working with living systems and to evaluate the possible approaches to solutions. The Biomedical Engineering program provides a strong foundation in the basic sciences, electronics and instrumentation engineering and life sciences coupled with opportunities for research and internships.
The department has a team of qualified, dedicated and committed faculty members who groom the students as holistic Bio-medical Engineers. The department houses, state of the art laboratories with cutting edge technologies catering to the needs of Bio-medical field. In order to empower the students, hands on training on Real time signal acquisition and processing, Design and Fabrication of Bio-medical systems and softwares like LabVIEW, Matlab. To expose the students to latest teaching learning process smart class room, video lectures, mini projects and case studies have been introduced. This prepares the students to face the challenges of the technical era with confidence and self-esteem
