"Biomedical Engineering" is an application of all classical 'engineering principles' to solve clinical problems in medical and surgery. Biomedical engineers work with other healthcare professionals as members of a team. Employment opportunities for biomedical engineers exist in industry, government, universities, medical schools and hospitals.
The Department was established in the year 2004 with active clinical/industry partnership in association with our sister institution, SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Institute, Kattankulathur. Since then, the department has been actively engaged in diversified research and teaching. Its main objective is to provide a knowledge-based, timely, cost effective and high quality service to clinicians in a professional and responsible manner, in order to improve and enhance patient care by supporting all aspects of care related technology. The department offers B.Tech, M.Tech, and Ph.D programmes in Biomedical Engineering. The students of our department make a visit periodically to various departments of our sister medical institutions, and get a deep knowledge about the existing medical devices and instruments. Further, the students carry out in-plant training at prestigious medical industry/institutions, located at various part of India, during their vacation. The Department has signed a MoU with IGCAR(Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research),kalpakkam and Bharat Scans Pvt Ltd, Chennai for R& D Programmes

The curriculum and syllabus for B.Tech programs conform to outcome based teaching learning process. In general, ELEVEN STUDENT OUTCOMES (a-k) have been identified and the curriculum and syllabus have been structured in such a way that each of the courses meets one or more of these outcomes. Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. Further each course in the program spells out clear instructional objectives which are mapped to the student outcomes.
The student outcomes are:
a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g) an ability to communicate effectively
h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
This program combines the academic & practical exposure required to pursue a career in the bio-medical field. Modules of this program train the student to plan, design, install, operate, and maintain complex systems that help medical practitioners in diagnosis and treatment of varied diseases.
The department consists of a good number of faculty members, who have experience in teaching, industry and research. The faculty members are well versed with current trends and technologies in the industry. Their sound technical knowledge helps in guiding the students in recent advances in the broad areas of biomedical engineering.
The thrust areas of Research for the Department of Biomedical Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) are:
