Date: 8 – 12 June 2015Venue: Centre for MEMS & Micro-Fluidics
While finding engineers and machinists with micro-manufacturing skills, there is definitely a skill gap in micro-manufacturing throughout the world. It is a global issue. Research work in the field of MEMS and Microfluidics also get delayed due to the lack of manpower with the knowledge and skills in the area of Micro-manufacturing. Since the investment cost for micro-machining processes and maintenance cost of clean room facilities are very expensive, only very few Institutions like IITs have the full-pledged facilities for micro-machining technology. We have also developed very important micro fabrication facilities at this centre under various sponsored projects. Participating in this internship will surely be a very good opportunity.
WHO CAN APPLY: Candidates in their final year of their Bachelor’s degree, pursuing a Masters or PhD. degree in any branch of Science, Engineering or Medicine are welcome to apply. We also welcome postdoctoral fellows, clinicians, and faculty from colleges/universities. Candidates must provide their academic details and submit a statement of interest in the form below. Selected participants will be provided with train fare (3rd AC), boarding and lodging. If you are selected, please bring your marksheets/certificates for verification.
INDIA is one of the fastest growing health care markets in the world. The current estimate of health care device market is about $1billion with a projected growth rate of 18%. Realizing this huge potential, Indian industry as well as academecia has started showing keen interest in biomaterials and medical devices research. As a result, establishments like National Laboratories, Indian Institutes of Technology and other leading Universities have started research as well as teaching programs. Many of the establishments work in close association with the industry also. As an outcome of this, apart from the ongoing research activities, indigenously developed implants and devices like artificial heart valve, hydrocephalus shunt, blood oxygenator etc. are also available in the Indian market.
M.Tech.B.Tech./B.E./B.Sc.(Engg.)/M.Sc. in respective or allied area with a valid GATE/UGC/CSIR score; B.Tech. graduates from IITs with an overall minimum CGPA of 6.5 and a CGPA of 8.0 during the last two semesters in B.Tech. may also apply without a GATE score (such candidates will, however, be not entitled for Institute Assistantship if CGPA is below 8.0). For M.Tech. in Biological Sciences and Bio Engineering, candidates with MBBS or B.Pharma Degree are also considered. Eligibility for a specialization within a Department may depend on the candidate’s choice of test paper in GATE.
Ph.D. admissions in Biomedical Engineering Applications are invited from suitably qualified and highly motivated students willing to pursue research at Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad in the following areas of Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering:
