About the Department
The Department of Bio medical Engineering affiliated to Anna University is established in the year 2020 with an intake of 60 to promote the human health through education and research that bridges the gap between medicine and Bioengineering. Our students will be leading force in the new era of medicine where skills of engineering play a vital role to improve healthcare diagnosis, monitoring and therapy. Biomedical engineers design, installs, inspects, maintains, repair, calibrate the medical equipment’s and are employed in Healthcare domains, Hospitals, and defense etc.
- To impart quality education in the field of biomedical science by applying engineering principles.
- To achieve academic excellence by applying biomedical engineering knowledge.
- To adapt emerging technologies in biomedical engineering through continual learning.
- To acquire the knowledge of medical instrumentation through engineering and related R & D activities.
- To work with hospitals and healthcare industries to enhance practical knowledge.
- To develop competencies for employability and entrepreneurship in core and interdisciplinary areas.
