Dr. Vidhyapriya R. , Professor & Head

Biomedical Engineering (BME), started in the year 2006, is a field that integrates Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology to solve medically relevant problems. It uses engineering approaches and methodologies to solve problems in medicine. The proliferation of new tools enable biomedical engineering to innovate new technologies for biomedical and therapeutic applications.These powerful technologies offer vast new possibilities for enhancing our understanding of complex living organisms and for preventing diseases, maintaining health and improving the quality of life. Biomedical engineering also brings quantitative analysis and rational design approaches to many other domains such as agriculture, food technology, basic life science and pharmaceuticals apart from biomedical devices.

Examples of Biomedical Engineering activities include medical device design, fabrication and testing, prosthesis fabrication, physiological function monitoring, home health care technology development, biomedical information, functional imaging and tomography, biomaterial development and biocompatibility, artificial tissue and organ fabrication, development of biosensors, telemedicine equipments and biomedical microsystems.

The demand for engineers with background in biology and medicine is growing rapidly. Biomedical engineers play key roles in designing and developing new instruments, deploying the emerging information infrastructure and creating new biomaterials and medical desires. Exciting new vistas are opening in computational biology and dynamic imaging of organs. Biomedical engineers are highly valued by new companies capitalizing on the revolution of the applications of advanced computers to biomedical problems. Individuals with degrees in biomedical engineering will find rewarding careers in industries, hospitals, medical schools and research institutions.

One of the great advantages of studying biomedical engineering at PSG College of Technology is the opportunity for the students to get hands-on-training at PSG Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (PSGIMS&R) which is an integral part of PSG Institutions managed by PSG & Sons Charities.
