Master's

Master of Technology (M Tech) curriculum in Biomedical Science and Engineering at the School of Health Sciences and Technology is designed to provide the incoming students a foundation of knowledge related to the modern biomedical technologies within the broader perspective of the health science and technology. The course is designed to offer introductory as well as advanced study modules such as cell biology, immunology, physiology, quality management, biomaterials, biosensors, diagnostic and biomedical devices. The curriculum also offers the courses on research methodology, regulatory aspects of technologies, intellectual property rights, publication and patent writing among others. In the beginning of the curriculum, the students arriving from the diverse disciplines are to be trained with a set of compulsory core courses drawn from different disciplines in the first semester. After the build-up of the foundation through this activity, in the second semester, the program offers to specialize through the electives and undergo hands-on training through the laboratory courses. In the third and the fourth semesters, the students would take up a research project along with exploring and specializing their knowledge base by taking one elective of their choice from any department in each semester.

M Tech in Biomedical Science and Engineering with Specialisation in Medical Devices and Diagnostics, is to be started from July 2022.
