Project Description :

The Biomedical Electronics Technology takes you beyond the basics of electronics and electricity into the world of advanced technical systems associated with medical care. You will find this program valuable if you want to develop the skills and the practical background necessary to inspect, test, calibrate, and repair advanced medical equipment and instrumentation, and to gain the interpersonal skills required to work with medical personnel.

The merging of Electronics with Biotechnology promises the advent of a totally new class of devices such as sensors and actuators (MEMS&NEMS) with applications in diagnostics, responsive drug delivery, biocompatibility, self-assembly etc. Proteins and nucleic acid are information rich molecules with structural and electrical properties making their incorporation in the human manufacturing arsenal an attractive proposition. This combination has become possible as today both top-down traditional manufacturing (e.g., MEMS and NEMS) Without biomedical scientists, departments such as accident and emergency and operating theatres could not properly function. The many roles include tests for emergency blood transfusions and blood grouping as well as tests on samples from patients who have overdosed on unknown substances, or may have leukemia or are suspected of having a heart attack. The successful performance of this key role in modern healthcare relies on the accuracy and efficiency of work by biomedical scientists because patients' lives and the treatment of illness depend on their skill and knowledge.
Disease-causing microorganisms are isolated for identification and for susceptible to antibiotic therapy. Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medical. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to improve healthcare diagnosis. The course in Biomedical Electronics combines the detailed study of electronics, as the main subjects of an Honors degree course, with a basic education in the physical, chemical, social and biomedical sciences. The structure and function of the human body are taught as an integrated subject comprising anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and cell biology. Mathematics is an essential part of each year of the course. Appropriate statistical techniques for this interdisciplinary subject are studied. After an introduction to computers and programming, computer

studies continue as an experimental subject, and may continue even further in the final year, since laboratory work in that year is in the form of an open-ended project on some aspect of biomedical electronics, and a student may choose to do a project which requires the use of a computer. A member of staff supervises the project, and there is often an opportunity for liaison with clinical and biological departments outside the University. When this occurs the work acquires an added interest to the student and they develop an appreciation of working as part of a team. The aim of the course is to produce graduates who, being qualified to begin a career as professional electronics engineers, are particularly well equipped t appreciate and to solve the problems that arise in the application of electronics to biomedical situations. It hardly need be pointed out that, even away from human problems, physical, mental and social.
