Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in the year 2006 with an intake of 60 students with the objective to produce biomedical engineers as well-groomed, skilled professionals in various domains of Biomedical Engineering, ready to deploy in industrial projects upon graduation through outcome based education with activity-based learner-centric approaches blended with state-of-art technology tools which leads to innovation and entrepreneurship skills.


Biomedical Engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to improve diagnosis and treatment in healthcare industry. Department of Biomedical Engineering at St. Peter’s Institute of Higher Education and Research prepares the students for wide careers in this emerging field. Students have obtained placements at leading hospitals. Many are pursuing their higher studies in prestigious institutions in India and abroad.

Much of the work in biomedical engineering consists of research and development, spanning a broad array of subfields. They play a prominent role in the management of resources in hospitals.Prominent biomedical engineering applications include the development of biocompatible materials, prosthetics, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices ranging from clinical equipment to micro-implants, common imaging equipments such as MRIs and EEGs, biotechnologies such as regenerative tissue growth, and pharmaceutical drugs & biopharmaceuticals.
