Today the developments in technologies especially Electronics, Communication, Instrumentation, Computer Engineering and Information Technology have led to improved diagnosis and therapy. Biomedical instruments are being developed which assist the medico person in imparting quick, accurate and reliable diagnosis and therapy.
Biomedical Engineering deals with the application of electronic, pneumatic and mechanical instruments that are used in medical science applications. The bachelors course on Biomedical Engineering in this Institute has started in the year of 2002 with an intake of 60 students. This course covers the Electronics and Instrumentation aspects of medical instruments required for health care. The theory of signal processing applied to medical science such as, image processing, digital signal processing, network analysis, etc. is also a part of academic curriculum in this course. This course also imparts training to the students for overall design, maintenance and installation of medical instruments in a hospital or a medical R&D centre. This course aims to strengthen the manpower in the area of Biomedical Engineering. Thus, this forms a bridge between Engineering and Medical streams for research & development and also the regular practices.
Health monitoring and management of disease in health care system is one of the promising industries that is expected to grow rapidly and gain high profits in the near future.
The dependency on medical instruments has given rise to changes in electrical safety test and measurement of accuracy and calibration of medical instrument itself. A biomedical engineer is equally sharing the responsibility of health care along with doctors and paramedical staff. This demands a well trained and directionally educated Biomedical Engineer.
Unlike other engineering fields the advancement in Biomedical Engineering is more challenging. A biomedical Engineer is useful to the society in following manner:
As an engineer in medical hospital to maintain, train, monitor instruments and if necessary deduce diagnosis (at elementary level).
* As a development engineer in preparing up a proto-type instrument.
* As a R&D engineer in medical sciences.
* As a development engineer to set up an instrumental patient monitoring system.
