Biomedical engineering is an exciting and emerging interdisciplinary field that combines engineering and life sciences. Due to the advanced developments in electronics and computing domains, medical sciences and its allied areas are being explored to a new paradigm of technological breakthrough. Biomedical engineering is playing an important role in interfacing the computational infrastructure with medical domainto supports physicians in decision making. It is expected that the student of the program would be able to come up with algorithms for the successful and objective interpretation of biological data. It is intended to equip the engineer with the skills, knowledge and jargon required to interact knowledgeably with medical practitioners so that both professions may benefit. It goes without saying that the program is interdisciplinary, drawing content from a variety of areas like chemistry, medicine, physics, electronics and mechanical engineering, to name a few. A student of the post-graduate program in biomedical engineering can expect to have bright career prospects, be it in the industry, academia or research.
