HOD's Desk:

The emerging era of individualized medicine and widespread utilization of health information technology presents a dramatically different terrain for clinical research, practice, and healthcare delivery. We can see rich opportunities for improving health through the creation of new knowledge about what works best for whom under what circumstance, and to apply it more expeditiously. One of the important functions of the Programme of Medical Electronics is use of its convening capacity to draw together key stakeholders in a neutral venue, one that allows them to discuss issues and foster collaborative activities around issues in which they have a strong common interest. The department aims to achieve this by emphasizing on teaching and research.

DEPARTMENT PROFILE

The college established the branch of Medical Electronics in 1992 to expand its academic horizon in the fast-growing field of healthcare technologies. Having batch strength of around thirty and with an experienced and well-qualified faculty, the college has laid its focus to impart synergistic education in the field of medical electronics and life sciences to translate it into real world applications. the institution has thus been able to contribute a large pool of talented biomedical engineers into the industry. The department also hosts M.Tech in Biomedical Signal Processing and Instrumentation from 2013. We believe that collaboration is Everything. Thus, the department has various collaborations with major research institutes like Stanford University, Oxford University, Masstricht University,  Indian Institute of Science, Narayana Nethralaya, Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences and many more.
