Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering



Biomedical engineers typically do the following: Design systems and products, such as artificial internal organs, artificial devices that replace body parts, and machines for diagnosing medical problems. Install, adjust, maintain, repair, or provide technical support for biomedical equipment.
Biomedical engineering, or bioengineering, is the application of engineering principles to the fields of biology and health care. Bioengineers work with doctors, therapists and researchers to develop systems, equipment and devices in order to solve clinical problems.

B.E. Biomedical Engineering: Eligibility. Candidate must have passed the 10+2 or equivalent examination from a recognized state or central board with at least 50% (40% to 45% for reserved category candidates) of the marks with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics/Biology as the major subjects of study.




  • The course is of 4 years duration
  • The candidates have to appear for the entrance examination conducted by the respective institution.
  • After +2, one can directly do B.E. in Biomedical Engineering, Or
  • B.E in other branches of engineering then become a Bio medical professional by completing a postgraduate course in Biomedical engineering. 
  • Or, one can do B.E in any branch of Engineering and go for a postgraduate course in Medical Technology, which is considered equivalent to a postgraduate course in Biomedical Engineering.
  • One could also take up this career after completing an MBBS degree and then opt for a postgraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering/ Medical Engineering/ Medical Technology.




  • Bioinstrumentation - It specializes in the application of electronics and measurement techniques to develop devices for diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
  • Biomechanics -   Biomechanics is the application of mechanical principles on living organism and also the analysis of mechanics of organisms.  
  • Biomaterials - This area of science is about the natural or manmade material used for the medical application.  
  • Molecular, cellular and Tissue Engineering - It deals with the development of artificial materials and tissue that used for artificial blood vessels and organs, replacement of skin and bone.
  • Clinical Engineering - It deals with develop and maintain computer database of medical instruments and equipment record in hospitals.
  • Orthopaedic Bioengineering - This science helps to understand the function of the bones, muscles and the joints. It also helps to design and develop artificial joint replacement.  
  • Navigation Systems - It is a specialized branch that use software tools and specialized imaging equipment to create a digital picture of the insides of a human patient's body.
  • Rehabilitation Engineering - It is used to design, develop, adapt, test, evaluate, apply and distribute technological solutions to problems faced by individuals with disabilities like communications, hearing, and vision. The Rehabilitation engineers improve the capabilities and develop the quality of life for such individuals. 
  • Systems physiology - It is the study of living systems including molecular processes, isolated tissues, organ systems and the whole organism. This study also includes the analysis of how various organs interacts and function.
