The Department of Electronics and Biomedical Engineering was started in the year 2007 with an intake of 60 students in UG programme under cochin university of science and technology. In 2015 the college is affiliated with KTU and continued its program as BTech in Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Engineering aims to improve human health by applying engineering principles. The emerging field focuses on advances in healthcare field by designing, developing and problem solving techniques in medical equipment. The highly motivated, qualified and experienced faculty and energetic students work together extensively in developing Biomedical Department. The conferences, seminar and workshops conducted by department in enriching students knowledge and ethics of healthcare. The department provide platform for building students practical knowledge through well-equipped laboratories and implant training. The department continues its journey with good academics, student strength and professional excellence.
To achieve academic excellence in biomedical engineering by developing engineers with state of the art technological skill and professional ethics, to support health care need of the society.
Biomedical engineers analyze and design solutions to problem in biology and medicine, with the goal of improving the quality and effectiveness of patient care.
Employment of biomedical engineers is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will be strong because an aging population is likely to need more medical care and because of increased public awareness of biomedical engineering advances and their benefits.
Electing to graduate with a major in biomedical engineering opens the door to an ever-growing amount of job opportunities, fusing the medical and engineering worlds in order to increase the quality of life all over the planet.
Biomedical engineers typically do the following:
Biomedical engineers may design instruments, devices, and software; bring together knowledge from many technical sources to develop new procedures; or conduct research needed to solve clinical problems.
They often serve a coordinating function, using their background in both engineering and medicine. For example, in industry, they may create products for which an in-depth understanding of living systems and technology is essential. Also, they frequently work in research and development or in quality assurance.
Biomedical engineers design electronic circuits, software to run medical equipment, or computer simulations to test new drug therapies. They also design and build artificial body parts such as hip and knee joints. In some cases, they develop the materials needed to make the replacement body parts. They also design rehabilitative exercise equipment.
The work of these engineers spans many professional fields. For example, although their expertise is based in engineering and biology, they often design computer software to run complicated instruments, such as three-dimensional x-ray machines.
