BIT | BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

biomedical engineering

Overview

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is established in 2019-2020 to cater to the growing demands for biomedical devices and procedures. With an approved intake of 50 students in the BE Biomedical Engineering the department aims to impart the students with necessary skills and knowledge related to human health; along with educating them on the uses and application of the modern biological principles in their engineering design process. Curriculum for the course has been designed to ensure proficiency bridging physiology, biology, healthcare, health informatics, mechanics and engineering. Through these the biomedical engineers can combine their diverse skills they have acquired in the course, to create solutions to the prevalent global health care issues; help to change how patients are treated; and lower the cost of healthcare. They are also expected to propose biomedical solutions to complex healthcare concerns of the society which expects newer, more convenient and more advanced means of treatment.

Vision

Department of Biomedical Engineering envisages to propel creative engineering knowledge and advancements in biomedical technology to improve the healthcare conditions for the benefit of mankind.
