About Department


Welcome to the Department of Medical Electronics Engineering at B.M.S.College of Engineering, Bengaluru. We are the pioneers to start Medical Electronics Engineering in the year 1992 and continued our journey to make the future, the bridge between engineering, biology, and medicine. Medical Electronics Engineering is fostering collaborations among disciplines at its core by building on basic concepts in engineering and biology. We strive to educate where the needs, opportunities, and jobs are and will be in the future. With dynamic changes in healthcare, Make in India Start-ups and global economies it is going to bring a revolution in the healthcare domain.
Over the last three decades, we have grown our expertise and competence in the core Medical Electronics Engineering curriculum and research. We have a strong undergraduate program in Medical Electronics Engineering and a postgraduate program in Biosignal Processing and Instrumentation. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new technological developments. Students are
encouraged to work on various research projects.  
The department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research and has established an active research profile for carrying out collaborative research with Medtech start-ups and research institutes. To our alums, we welcome your feedback, participation, and ideas to continue to help us move ahead in our educational and research initiatives. We wish to engage you to establish a strong network of support and opportunity for our students and help us map future directions for our program as we mature.

About Department:

The department of Medical Electronics Engineering was established in 1992 to expand its academic horizon to the fast-growing field of healthcare technologies. The college has laid its focus to impart education in the field of medical electronics and health sciences to translate it into real-world applications. With experienced and well-qualified faculty (90% doctorates), with an average experience of 25 years, the department has been able to contribute a large pool of talented biomedical engineers into the industry. The current intake for the undergraduate programme is sixty, and the department is also offering an M.Tech programme in Biomedical Signal Processing and Instrumentation since 2013 with an intake of 18.
With the belief that collaboration is everything, the department has networked with premier research institutes like Stanford University, Oxford University, Maastricht University, Ohio State University, Texas A&M University, Indian Institute of Science, Narayana Nethralaya, Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences and many more.
The department also has a center for innovation in medical electronics (CIME). It has been set up with the objective of creating a forum for industry, institutions, and hospitals to work together for developing affordable innovative healthcare devices and encouraging faculty/student research-driven entrepreneurship.
