ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
M.App.Sc.BMI / M.Sc.BMI course was introduced in the School of Medical Education (SME),Gandhinagar,Kottayam in 1995.And our course is first of its kind in South India. Since then around 21 batches have rolled out. These students are well respected among the National and International Biomedical / Clinical Engineering community. The course is well accepted as a qualification to apply for Clinical/ Biomedical Engineering jobs. A good majority of the major hospitals/companies both Nationally and Internationally has employed a commendable number of Biomedical post graduates from our Institution.
Over a period of 2 years, it covers a vast domain of areas in Biomedical like Biophotonics and Non-Radiating Medical Imaging Techniques, BioSignal Processing, Medical Image Processing, Biomedical Equipments, Medical Imaging systems using Ionizing Radiations, Automation and Quality Control in Biomedical Engineering, Microprocessor Based System Design, Digital Electronics and Hospital Management Science, Medical Informatics etc required in the Biomedical Field. The course deals with the detailed study in the application field of Biomedical Instrumentation. Labs are equipped with the prominent diagnostic and therapeutic equipments.
The students of our department make a visit periodically to various departments of Multi Specialty hospitals during the course of their study and get a deep knowledge about the existing medical devices and instruments. A candidate may however in certain cases be permitted to work on the Project in an Industry/Hospital/Research Organization on the recommendation of the Head of the Department.
