B.E. - Bio-Medical Engineering


INTRODUCTION

Biomedical Engineering is an upcoming field of technology characterized by a considerable stress on interdisciplinary approach. Being an integrating medium for two dynamic professions, Medicine and Engineering, this discipline cherishes the broad objective of assisting in the struggle against illness and disease by providing tools and techniques research, diagnosis and treatment. The diversified nature of the course encapsulates within its purview, various disciplines of specialization. Biomedical engineers develop devices and procedures that solve medical and health related problems by combining biology and medicine with engineering. A biomedical professional works with other healthcare professionals like physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians and design instruments, devices and software that contribute to the development of healthcare. The course educates on how to gain technical expertise in biology and medicine simultaneously and contribute effectively in the development and improvement of healthcare solution. The biomedical engineers strive towards attaining perfection in the world of medicine and healthcare and enhancing the quality of life of suffering patients.

Engineering with its various branches like mechanical, electrical, civil, electronics etc., has been popular among students for quite a long time. However, in recent times, Biomedical Engineering has become very popular among the student�s community. In the filed of Biomedical Engineering, a continuous change going on with the creation of new area due to the rapid advancement in technology. Biomedical Engineering combines the essential principles of both medicine and engineering. The biomedical engineers apply the concept of biology, physics as well as chemistry to develop products and devices for diagnosis and treatment. The branch integrates physical, chemical, mathematical and computational sciences and engineering principles to study biology, medicine, behavior and health. So, the biomedical engineers have to work closely in association with healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians.

Biomedical engineers develop innovative biologics, processes, materials, devices and informatics to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases for patients� rehabilitation. Many of the biomedical engineers do research work along with professionals from life sciences, chemists and medical scientists. The devices like artificial organs, prostheses, medical information systems, instrumentation, health management and care delivery systems etc., are the contributions of biomedical engineers. Thus, the engineers in this specialized field need to have a sound background in a basic engineering field like mechanical or electronics together with biomedical field. Here, the specialists are also concerned with developing imaging systems such as magnetic resonance, ultrasound and X-ray machines, and techniques and devices to automate insulin injections or control body functions

Prospects:
The kinds of institutions that employ biomedical engineers include medical research institutions, government regulatory agencies, hospitals, industrial firms and teaching institutions. Biomedical engineers often use their background in engineering and medicine to perform a coordinating role. Biomedical engineers find employment with companies that manufacture equipment used in hospitals and diagnostic centres or centres for research and development, manufacturing, quality control and testing as also installation maintenance or sales and marketing departments. They can also get jobs with large hospitals for selecting, handling and maintaining sophisticated equipments in addition to building customized devices for special needs or work in institutions involved in research. There are a few government agencies where you can get recruited for product testing, safety and establishing safety standards for devices.

Employment opportunities for biomedical engineers are immense considering the fact that the aging of the population and focus on health issues will increase the demand for better medical devices and equipment designed by biomedical engineers. Other developments, like computer � assisted surgery and heavy research in molecular, cellular and tissue engineering will also increase the demand for biomedical engineers. Further, the rehabilitation and orthopedic engineering fields are growing at a very fast pace, which also require the services of biomedical engineers

The department of Biomedical Engineering has time-honored in the year 2005. The mission of the department is to communicate and educate the students, on how to gain technical expertise in biology and medicine simultaneously and contribute effectively in the development and improvement of healthcare solutions.

Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with the medical and biological science to help, improve patient health care and the quality of life of healthy individuals. It is a broad multidisciplinary field that offers rewarding careers related to computer science, electrical engineering, engineering physics, mathematics and statistics, mechanical engineering, software engineering and agricultural and bio-systems engineering

Bio-Medical Engineers design and develop instruments for diagnosis and rehabilitation. As a biomedical engineer, they can be involved in formulating new scheme of diagnosis method, analysis and decision making procedures that enhance the quality of health care system. They can develop innovative biologics materials, processes, implants and informatics for patient rehabilitation and for improving health.

Graduates of this course work in a range of application areas, that include the design or production of
(i) a wide range of patient monitoring diagnostic and therapeutic medical equipments,
(ii) Devices to assist in home-based health care systems and
(iii) Devices and methods to take care of rural public through telemedicine.
They also find employment in electronics engineering and information technology.
