Bio-Medical and Instrumentation Engineering
Bio-Medical and Instrumentation Engineering is the special branch of engineering which deals with the application of the engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology. The discipline aims to build a bridge between engineering and medicine and contribute in the healthcare treatment including diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and therapy. Biomedical engineering Instrumentation is an interdisciplinary subject plays an important role in the product development and their commercial applications and maintenance in the healthcare sector. Prominent biomedical engineering fields include development of biocompatible prostheses, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices ranging from clinical equipment to micro-implants, imaging equipments such as MRIs and ECGs and EEGs, regenerative tissue growth, pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic biologicals. It is a comparatively new field in the engineering branches.
