About the Department

The department was established with an undergraduate programme in Biomedical Engineering in 2003. The PG programme was inaugurated in the year 2004 – 2005 with active clinical partnership in association with our sister institution,Vinayaka Mission’s Kirupananda Variyar Medical College & Hospital (VMKVMC) - http://www.vmkvmc.edu.in/. Since then, the department has been actively engaged in diversified research and teaching. The department has endowed with effective application of engineering principles in the medical field.


VIMS & AMCH

The department is very well supported by the Vinayaka Mission Institute of Medical Science (VIMS) - http://vimshospitals.com/ and Annapoorana Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) - http://www.amch.in/. These hospitals are having all sophisticated biomedical equipments where our students are given hands on training in clinical and non-clinical departments.


Aim

The department is aiming to achieve attainable targets, including identifying novel areas of biomedical research, receiving more grant proposals, added publications in journals and conferences, increasing the number of internal and external industrial collaborations, strengthening the department and helping the students in pursuing a successful career in the biomedical discipline.


Objectives
  • To impart knowledge towards the application of engineering concepts and analytical techniques to biological and medical problems.
  • To develop new concepts, instrumentation, and materials for use with living systems.
  • To keep the students abreast of new technologies in the field of medicine and biotechnology and to make them an intelligent resource to look after the most expensive part of the hospitals.
  • To emphasize teamwork, communication skills, and hands-on laboratory and research experience.

Programme Offered

These Programme aim at students who are interested in both medicine and engineering. This programme blends traditional engineering techniques with biological sciences to improve the quality of human health and focuses on understanding complex living systems and use of technology & systems to improve diagnosis and treatment.
