The postgraduate programme on Medical Electronics will help students to learn and apply the principles of physical and engineering sciences to the practical problems of biomedicine and clinical practice. The students will:
The Programme is established in the Department of Biomedical Engineering for the current year and will prove to be tremendously successful in producing graduates equipped for careers in the healthcare professions. The curriculum is designed to bridge the physical and engineering sciences with biomedical science and clinical practice and the students will learn to apply the principals of these fields to the practical problems of biomedicine. The curriculum broadly focuses on medical electronics, physiology, physiological measurement techniques, and design and safety of biomedical instruments. The added advantage of the programme is that no previous biomedical knowledge is required and the students learn in theory and gain hands on experience in working with biomedical instruments in laboratories and hospitals. Students can broaden their knowledge of both electronic engineering and physics, encompassing the aspects of both disciplines as applied to medicine. Students can effectively acquire the medical vocabulary they need to communicate effectively with clinical colleagues. In addition to lectures, students will individually work on research projects including design and development of medical instruments, speech, signal and image processing modalities and acquire key skills in research techniques and project management. The programme prepares the students for professional appointments as engineers and scientists in the field of healthcare and enables them to make their own contribution to the maintenance and improvement of the standard of service to the patients.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at SSN College of Engineering (SSNCE) undertakes research of exceptional quality, in diverse fields of medicine and healthcare. The department has 14 well-qualified staff members with 7 doctorates, and others on the verge of submitting their thesis. Staff members are working on diverse areas of research including Cognitive Neuro-computing, Medical Signal and Image Processing, Speech Processing, Biomedical Instrumentation, Biomaterial associated infections and Tissue Engineering. This research feeds into teaching the students, helping them to develop into extremely well qualified professionals with opportunities for employment in leading industries as well as in pursuing successful research. Both research and teaching are well established and the department has close association with a number of healthcare companies and research laboratories to enable students in pursuing a successful career upon completion.
Our postgraduate students will enjoy a range of excellent resources, including
The curriculum for M.E. in Medical Electronics covers the following:
Students undertake projects under various streams, a few are mentioned herewith and benefit from successful placements and research openings in universities abroad.
