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.

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.
Department of Biomedical Engineering National Institute of Technology Raipur Chhattisgarh, India.
The best learning phase in my career so far was happened to me at SSN. The two years I spent at SSN taught me immense lessons in my research career and raised my confidence level. The faculties at Dept of BME are so encouraging, friendly and some of them are best in this field. They showed me the real excitement in learning new techniques that would help in healthcare needs. I would also advice my juniors and the incoming students to use the maximum potential of the faculties here. Trust me the practical knowledge you will gain at BME laboratories will help you forever in your career. I got the best supervisor and mentor, under their guidance I have published around 4 research articles in IEEE journal and other reputed biomedical journals. This has largely helped me in pursuing my PhD at NIT Raipur with Institutional scholarship.

Application Engineer at ASML Eindhoven, North Brabant Province, Netherlands
It all began from the insisting words by my mentor Dr. S. Pravin Kumar, who suggested me to apply for masters abroad. I did my Masters in Nano-electronic systems in the Technical University of Dresden, Deutschland and now positioned as Application Engineer at ASML, Netherlands. Things I learnt from SSN cannot be written in words, Each and every day was a learning to me. If you have crazy ideas please work on it and I am sure SSN will recognize it through internal fund and other moral support. I would say “ To a student SSN is another parent who can teach, support and shape”. My sincere thanks to all the support you had given to me SSN. “Please make use of the roads provided by SSN to reach your destination”.

Management School, University of Liverpool United Kingdom.
Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at SSN is the place where everything related to my professional career kick-started. Along with learning core biomedical engineering modules, I also got opportunities to implicitly learn aspects related to new product development, project/team/people management, time allocation, and conflict resolution, among others. Excellent faculty with the support of impressive lab infrastructure trained me on adopting interdisciplinary approaches to solve real world problems. Nothing other than these experiences triggered my inclination towards research. After completing my bachelors in biomedical engineering (2008-2012), I stepped forward to pursue doctoral studies at Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (India) and focused my research on healthcare operational excellence. I owe a substantial part of my journey and the achievements in it to the amazing group of BME faculty at SSN. In summary, anyone who is open-minded and has the tenacity to learn will never be disappointed by the ecosystem that department of BME at SSN will offer. I urge all the new joiners to make the most from the wonderful opportunities they will be introduced to during their affiliation with BME at SSN.
