The Programme
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 biomedical engineers apply the concepts 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, behaviour and health. Biomedical engineers design devices used in various medical procedures, such as the computers used to analyze blood or the laser systems used in corrective eye surgery. Biomedical Engineers specialize in a variety of functional areas, including bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, biomaterials, clinical engineering, medical imaging, and rehabilitation engineering and systems physiology.

Job Prospects & Career Option
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. In industry, biomedical engineers use their understanding of living systems and technology to design and test new products. They develop artificial organs, imaging systems such as magnetic resonance, ultrasound, x-ray, and devices for automating insulin injections or controlling body functions. Some specialties within biomedical engineering include biomaterials, biomechanics, medical imaging, rehabilitation engineering, and orthopedic engineering.
