The department of Biomedical Engineering was started in the year 2005 offering B.E Biomedical Engineering and M.E. Medical Electronics, since 2014. The U.G. program is accredited by NBA and has been recognized as a research centre by Anna University in 2011 for pursuing M.S (By Research) and Ph.D. programme.The department has 15 faculty members with 10 Ph.D. holders.The department has well-equipped, laboratories like Biomedical Instrumentation lab, Microbiology and Biochemistry lab, Diagnostic and Therapeutic lab, and Medical Software labto enable the students and the scholars to pursue research in-house.

The department coordinates CENTRE FOR HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGIES – A multidisciplinary research initiative, which carries out world class research activities in the field of neuroscience, medical signal and image processing, medical instrumentation and bioengineering. Highlights of the department include industry-institute interactions with eminent healthcare organisations like Neolight USA, Wild Box Technologies Singapore, NIEPMD,Philips, Siemens, National Instruments, Texas Instruments, and Signed MoUs with Drexel University USA, Birmingham City University UK. Several consultancy projects in biomechanics, biomaterials and artificial organs have been carried out for National and overseas clients.

Our students pursue Master's and Doctoral studies at prestigious Universities like Carnegie MellonUniversity, University of Florida, IIT Madras, Cornell University,The University of Melbourne, Technical University Dresden, Germany, Duke’s University, North Carolina, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore,Arizona State University, University of California, San Diego,Texas University, Arlington,Ghent University, Belgium, Lamar University, Texas. The department frequently organizes international and national conferences, lecture series, workshops, Faculty Development Programme, and guest lectures on diverse concepts related to the core and inter-disciplinary subjects in biomedical engineering to equip the students in gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the industrial requirements to the fullest.
