It is said that necessity is the mother of invention, and the biomedical engineering students of Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering for Women have shown how true the idiom is. The students as part of their final-year project have developed twelve prototypes that can aid in healthcare. The students have developed the concept from scratch with the help of the faculty and have created working models of their innovative ideas. All the designs are extremely practical and find use in day-to-day life of people not only undergoing medical treatment but in diagnosis and the lives of the disabled as well.
With an objective to nurture talent in the field of information technology and allied areas, the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad has launched a five-year integrated post graduate Bio- Medical Engineering course for the coming 2012-13 academic session.
Giving details M D Tiwari, IIIT-A director, said that Bio-Medical Engineering is a division of engineering that deals with the study of engineering laws and techniques that are applied in the medical sector. Bio-medical engineering develops and manufactures of prostheses, medical equipments, diagnostic devices and drugs. Biomedical engineering course curriculum includes bio-mechanics, tissue and cellular engineering, genetic engineering, orthopaedic surgery, bio-instrumentation, medical imaging and bio-materials.
Introduction to Biomedical signals, equipment, hardware and software (different processing techniques) knowledge.
6 weeks or 45 days
Hardware and Medical-Instrumentation 1 week
BASICS IN Bio-ELECTRONICS: 1 week
