Karpaga Vinayaga
College of Engineering and Technology

Biomedical Engineering Courses

Biomedical Engineering was started in the year 2012 with an intake of 60 students. This Program is affiliated to Anna University and has been approved by AICTE, New Delhi. Our aim is to provide quality education to the students and impart Communication excellence in them. Apart from making them good technocrats, we also provide individual attention to make them good citizens of our nation to serve the industry and society constructively. The greatest advantage for the students is that the department is located in the vicinity of Karpaga Vinayaga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) and hospital, so that they can apply their theoretical knowledge imbibed from various subjects in practical sessions. The students are motivated and guided to pursue research in their field of interest with all the technical resources needed to carry out their research in association with KIMS. Keeping the employability of the graduates in mind we also offer special programme on communication skills and soft skills so that they become technical experts as well as confident personalities in today's competitive job market.

The department has faculty members with more than a decade of experience in teaching, research and industrial exposure from various areas in biomedical engineering. Our faculty and the students work extensively to build interdisciplinary knowledge in the areas of Medicine, Biomechanics, Bioinstrumentation and Biomedical Engineering. Apart from regular teaching classes, guest lectures by renowned professors on various subjects are also organized. The department has signed MOU with Michigan Technological University, USA for student and staff exchange programme. The department has planned to build tie-ups with several institutes and industries to facilitate Industrial visit, academic and research activities of the department. The students of the department are multi-faceted with an outstanding track record in academics and extra-curricular activities. We aim for excellence in under graduate education; meaningful and innovative research and service dedicated to advancing the field of Biomedical Engineering.
