B.E. Biomedical Engineering is a 4-year UG course with a specialization in the field of biomedical and related aspects. The minimum eligibility criterion which most of the institutes ask for is a score of at least 50% (relaxable for reserved category candidates) at 10+2 or equivalent level.
The fee for the course varies between INR 50,000 to INR 4, 50,000 in India. The variation in fee is based on the location and nature of university (that is government, state/private/deemed etc.).
B.E. Biomedical Engineering admissions involve Common Entrance Test (CET) based selection method as well as merit-based selection criteria that is the percentage of marks obtained at 10+2 or equivalent level by the candidate. Most of the colleges who provide admissions through CET mechanism rely on the score of All India level common entrance exams like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE etc while some of them go for a separate entrance exam of their own (like BITSAT, LPUNEST etc).
The course is aimed at providing discipline-specific skills and knowledge to the UG students so as to equip them with a holistic knowledge of the subject that will enable them to persecute the learning in a practical sense.
Under Graduates in Biomedical Engineering have a wide range of opportunities to choose from in terms of job opportunities such as Bio-Medical Technician, Bio-Medical Engineer, Bio Chemist, Teacher etc. After completion of graduation, one may pursue further studies like M.E. and M.Phil in the said subject or may take up job opportunities associated. The average salary ranges between INR 12,000 to 15,000 a month for new graduates in the discipline.
Engineering is a field of application of scientific concepts and principles in real life. Application of scientific concept to solve daily life problems is a crucial aspect of engineering studies irrespective of the stream.
Biomedical Engineering is one such stream of engineering which utilizes engineering knowledge and skills to help find solutions related to medical and biological problems. It is a multi-disciplinary subject which incorporates knowledge of various engineering domains like electrical, electronics, computer, and instrumentation to utilize it in a practical sense at the biological level.
The four-year engineering course in the domain aims at equipping the BE graduates with all the knowledge and expertise in regards to this multi-disciplinary subject so, that they are able to execute themselves effectively in the job market as well as are equipped properly to face the challenges that industry offers.
Candidate must have passed the 10+2 or equivalent examination from a recognized state or central board with at least 50% (40% to 45% for reserved category candidates) of the marks with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics/Biology as the major subjects of study.
The eligibility criteria’s mentioned above are common to most of the universities and colleges across the country that are offering this course to the students.
Admissions procedure for the course involves a common entrance test based admission process (as seen across various Universities and colleges in the country) as well as a merit-based selection process (in select few institutes/colleges).
