The Department of Biomedical Engineering, MIT offers the following programs:


B.Tech - Biomedical Engineering

B.Tech. in Biomedical Engineering (BME) involves the application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering and science to biology and medicine to design and develop systems as well as applications. Biomedical Engineering students have an opportunity to work on real-life problems and healthcare. The curriculum offers subjects such as biomedical instrumentation, medical signals and image processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, biomaterials & Tissue engineering, and nanotechnology to keep them in sync with advances in technology and prepare them for lifelong learning. The curriculum is designed to provide flexibility for students to opt for minor specialization offered by the department and online courses by reputed international universities. 


M.Tech - Biomedical Engineering

M. Tech in BME offered by the Biomedical Engineering Department provides a platform for the graduate students to strengthen their foundations in biomedical engineering and gather a diversified exposure to the latest know-how in technology. The two-year full-time post-graduate program is learner-centric, industry-oriented, and research-driven. Thus, providing a great educational choice for engineers who want to upskill for a career boost in industry or step ahead for a career in research.


M.Tech - Medical Informatics

M. Tech in Medical Informatics at MIT is designed to cater to the increasing demand for analyzing medical data that involves data visualization and Artificial intelligence. It is a two-year postgraduate degree program taught by MIT and industry experts. It is a unique multidisciplinary program that bridges Healthcare, Computer Science, and Statistics. The program is embedded with industry-required skillsets to facilitate the required clinical decision support systems and other smart healthcare services. The students will get a unique opportunity to enhance their skills with the current tools with a focus on medical data/information visualization and analysis; with an understanding of clinical decision support systems, machine learning, and deep learning for meeting the current needs. It enhances the capabilities needed to manage and transform the existing modalities into useful healthcare facilities by applying the knowledge of data engineering and data science along with AI-based approaches. Further, the program involves a project / research-based learning system, regular industry-institute interaction, guest lectures, and workshops with a state of art facilities.
