BioMechanics for Engineers (BME 2013)




Biomechanics is an emerging interdisciplinary field with contribution from professionals of various engineering disciplines and other fields like medicine, industry, physiotherapy, sports etc. In biomechanics, the structural and functional behaviour of biological systems are studied using the principles of mechanics and engineering.

Developing methods, procedures and devices to improve impaired movements of patients with musculoskeletal diseases/disorders is an important area of R&D in biomechanics. An understanding of the biomechanics of the system and expertise of engineering, medical and industrial fields are essential to develop safe, affordable and accessible solutions for such problems. However such an interdisciplinary approach, though quite needed, is still at its initial stage in an Indian context.

International Workshop on Coatings And Surfaces For Biomedical Engineering at IITM

Thin film coatings and surface engineering are an integral part of many bio-medical devices. Many cardiovascular, orthopedic and other implants as well as extra-corporeal accessories require fatigue-resistant, high-strength materials coatings and bio/hemo-compatible surfaces to achieve the intended functionality. Novel concepts, technology and thinking in this field have enabled advancement in existing devices as well as development of futuristic devices.
International Workshop on Coatings and Surfaces for Bio medical engineering (IWCSB 2014) is an attempt to discuss the technological advancements, to share the ideas, disseminate the information and more importantly foster groups to pursue research in the field of in coatings & surface engineering for medical applications. Also, it is an excellent opportunity for the young researchers, academia and industry to explore this exciting field in its infancy.

IEEE Workshop on MEMS & MIcrosystems with Hands on Training

IEEE Workshop on MEMS & Microsystems with Hands-on training in Device Simulation & Microfabrication Process” is being jointly organized by IEEE Student Branch, WiE Affinity group of IIT Kharagpur and IEEE EMB Student Club IIT Kharagpur. The workshop aims to provide an excellent forum to interact and share ideas on the MEMS and microelectronics system, technologies, emerging applications with hands-on simulation and fabrication procedure to the students, researchers and faculties working in the area of MEMS sensing and technology. This will be a three days workshop where experts from industries and academia are invited to share their knowledge in the respective fields.
