About The Department

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.

B.E. – Biomedical Engineering

Department of Biomedical Engineering is recognized as a world leader in preparing students for careers in industry and business and for graduate education in engineering, medicine, and science. Biomedical engineering, or bioengineering, is the application of engineering principles to the fields of biology and health care. Biomedical engineers work with doctors, therapists and researchers to develop systems, equipment and devices in order to solve clinical problems. Biomedical engineering utilizes knowledge from traditional engineering disciplines to solve problems in living systems. The undergraduate program contains a set of ?core knowledge,? defined and taught by the faculty, that future biomedical engineers should possess.

Our students were exposed to various trainings in hospitals and companies. Various programmes like seminars, workshops were organized by the department to inculcate research in the young minds. Students were encouraged by giving seed money for the best ideas do their project.

M.E. – Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering is the application of principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering to biology and medicine. This is evident throughout healthcare, from diagnosis and analysis to treatment and recovery, and has entered the public conscience though the proliferation of implantable medical devices, such as pacemakers and artificial hips.

Biomedical engineering focuses on the advances that improve human health and health care at all levels. Biomedical engineering differs from other engineering disciplines that have an influence on human health in that biomedical engineers use and apply an intimate knowledge of modern biological principles in their engineering design process. There are many sub disciplines within biomedical engineering, including the design and development of active and passive medical devices, orthopaedic implants, medical imaging, biomedical signal processing, tissue and stem cell engineering, and clinical engineering.
