The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a 4 Year B.E Biomedical Engineering Programme which is affiliated to Anna University. Biomedical Engineering is the application of Engineering Principles and design concepts to medicine for human healthcare in terms of Diagnosis, Monitoring and Therapy. Biomedical Engineering involves the study and application of engineering processes for Diagnosis and Therapy. It is a rapidly changing interdisciplinary domain, in which each branch of Engineering interacts with a number of other disciplines to yield a fundamental understanding of health maintenance processes and improved diagnosis, optimal interventional, prosthesis and organ assist systems, health care systems performance and econometrics.
To be recognized nationally as a high-quality, research-driven biomedical engineering department with excellence in education
- To develop the students with the skills to enhance the clinical solutions for human health
- To provide enhanced training by nurturing the integration of science, engineering, and medicine in a cantered environment.
- B.E – Biomedical Engineering
