A Biomedical Engineering course educates a student on how to gain technical expertise in biology and medicine simultaneously and contribute effectively in the development and improvement of healthcare solutions. This unique field encompasses bio-instrumentation, bio-materials, bio-mechanics, medical imaging, genetic engineering, orthopedic surgery cellular and tissue engineering. Biomedical engineers device artificial organs like kidneys, pacemakers, sophisticated therapeutic and surgical devices like magnetic resonance imaging machine, laser system for eyes and more.
Benefits:The main objective of the subject is to bring about an improvement in the overall quality of healthcare.
Scope In India: Immense job opportunities in diverse spheres like medical equipments manufacturing, orthopedic and rehabilitation engineering, molecular, cellular and tissue engineering in public as well as in corporate sectors are available for the biomedical engineers in India. They can also be absorbed in hospitals to provide valuable advice on the status of medical equipments.
Scope Abroad:There is a huge demand for biomedical engineers abroad. Clinical engineers who monitor and maintain the databases of medical instrumentation and work with physicians to adapt instrumentation for the specific needs of the physician and hospitals are most sought after in hospitals abroad.
