Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering involves the study and application of engineering processes for diagnosis and therapy. Biomedical Engineering (BME) 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 (surgical, therapeutic & rehabilitative) procedures, prosthesis and organ assist systems, health care systems performance and econometrics.
Osmania University is the first University to start Biomedical Engineering at undergraduate level in the country. The course was started in 1982 at under graduate level and also started Post Graduate program in Medical Electronics in the academic year 2006.

M.P.C (EAMCET-2016)

The aspirations of students appearing for NEET/EAMCET in the Bi.P.C stream are to get admission in MBBS/BDS/Physiotherapy. The students who can not get any of these admissions can take up Bio-Medical Engineering as one of the option to get in to Engineering stream. This is the best option that a Bi.P.C student can complete Engineering and settle as an Engineer in a Hospital, Software Company, medical device company, research organization or a consulting company. Almost all the Deemed Universities offering BME allow Bi.P.C students also to take up the course.

Who can take BME?
  • Students who have the desire to pursue research in India /abroad, and become scientist to contribute to the society by developing cost effective medical devices/healthcare practices. n People who have the desire to work in the healthcare industry (Hospital/Medical Device Company).
  • Students with interest in sciences, and ability to apply engineering principles to the health issues.
  • Students who are fond of biology related subjects but should be good at mathematics (Human Anatomy, Physiology, etc.)
  • Students who are planning to go abroad for higher studies and settle in USA, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain., etc, provided that they go through the Course Curriculum.

Undergraduate academic program includes the following subjects:
B.E (Biomedical Engineering)
  • Basic Engineering-science courses (I-Year Common as other branches)
  • Medical Sciences (Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry).
  • Engineering technology courses (C, C++, Electronic Engineering courses, Signal Processing, Micro controllers and applications, Image processing, analog and Digital circuits, data Base management systems).
  • Clinical Sciences courses (Neurology, Nephrology, Orthopedics, Gastroenterology, Pathology, Blood Bank, Cardiology, Imaging Sciences, Radiology, Radiotherapy, Medicine & Surgery).
  • Biomedical Engineering courses (Transducers and Bio sensors engineering, Medical Instrumentation, Biomedical Equipment, Advanced Medical Equipment, Medical Embedded systems, Medical imaging Techniques, Medical Image processing, Biomedical Signal Processing, Rehabilitation Engineering, Bio mechanics, Biomaterials, Tele medicine, and Nanotechnology).
