About the Program:

With fast development apart from IT and education, health care has taken centre stage of our eco system with proliferation of corporate hospital systems, with advanced technological set up offering services to the public in the critical health management. Moreover peculiar nature of our system has led to development of disability management system both for the aged and young people having disabilities due to various factors plus the affordability of the families to support the individuals through technological support has created opportunity for engineers specializing in the medical electronics, embedded, instrumentation and mobility systems. Identifying this unique proposition Vignan University evolved the course in Biomedical engineering training resources on electronics, bio-technology, bio-medical instrumentation, bio-telematics, bio-image and video processing thus creating niche opportunities for the younger generation of the society. Students now have opportunities to associate themselves with various corporate hospitals having state of the art facilities and needing trained human resources to shoulder critical responsibility in the society. The IT companies also provide bio-medical services in form medical transcription, health care call centre, diagnostic and maintenance support. Thus a pool of opportunities for students with biomedical engineering has become a part of the our current societal need and makes them proud of being the part of the noble health care services of the society. This also created many research and product development opportunities filling the varying aspirations of the younger generations.

Biomedical Industry in India:

Biomedical in India began during the mid-1990s and is currently concentrated within the large domestic or multinational medical instrumentation firms. There are more than 1000 firms in India with biomedical-related activities and research. The Indian Biomedical industry employs more than 25,000 people and is estimated to grow to 35,000(research 50%, technical/services 35%, management 15%) in the next 5 years.

Scope for Employment:

Biomedical Engineering is the fastest growing field both in India and abroad. Over the last two decades the focus has shifted to include biological medicine, behavior or molecular health and develop innovative biologic, materials, implants, devices, and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and injury mechanics. Innovations in instrumentation, drug delivery, tissue engineering and biosensors have been internationally recognized.

There are plenty of employment opportunities both in government and private medical research laboratories as well as Hospitals. Recently, there are lots of initiatives from the government in improving the health care sector in India. That will translate in a huge potential of jobs for made Biomedical engineering.

At present, a biomedical engineer with a bachelor degree in India can start as a Service Engineer at hospitals, or as a product design engineer or even as a Sales and Service Engineer in multinationals like GE, Johnsons and Johnsons, Cipla, Phillips Healthcare, Texas Instruments, Siemens, etc. The median starting salary of biomedical engineers (graduates) is estimated at 2.5 lakhs per annum. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Employment Projections program, Employment of biomedical engineers is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Eligibility to appear Entrance Examination:

A student who qualified intermediate (10+2) with MPC (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry), BiPC (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) or MbiPC (Mathematics, Biology Physics and Chemistry)

  • Medical equipment and supplies manufacturing
  • Scientific research and development services
  • Pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing
  • Colleges, universities, and professional schools; state, local, and private
  • General medical and surgical hospitals; state, local, and private
  • Work Experience, Internships & Research :

    Students are encouraged for the Industrial Internship Program under the supervision of a senior faculty member. Typically, this internship takes place during the summer of the student's third year, and lasts for 6 weeks. Such internships play a valuable role in giving students a taste of industrial research and help them establish a network of contacts outside the University. The students also learn new techniques on state-of-the-art equipment, and return to the University laboratories with fresh ideas and a better sense of where the challenges lie within their learning area. We have already signed MoU's with some industries and are in process to sign MoUs with some more.
