What is the program about?

Biomedical engineering is the intersection between engineering and medicine, with the objective of advancing healthcare and enhancing the quality of human life. By integrating medicine, mechanics, computer science, and electronics, biomedical engineering brings holistic solutions to problems in the healthcare industry.  

In hospitals, biomedical engineers interact with doctors, patients, and researchers, to ensure smooth operation of medical procedures and instrumentation. 

Skill-Lync has teamed up with KiHT under AMTZ to offer a comprehensive masters program in biomedical engineering designed to equip students with the practical knowledge and skills required to thrive in the industry. 

Students will be required to clear an Indian Biomedical Skill Consortium (IBSC) examination to receive the program certification.

Fundamental Courses

1Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy studies the structures and parts of the human body, while physiology focuses on the interaction between the different structures and systems. Anatomy and physiology are at the very forefront of biomedical engineering as they provide a foundational understanding of the human body that is needed to develop solutions for common problems. Moreover, an understanding of the physiology of the human body is essential to know how it interacts with biomedical instruments.   

In this course you will learn the basic anatomy and physiology of the human body, the different systems, and associated medical terminology.

2Biomaterials

Biomaterials are materials or substances that have been designed and engineered to be placed inside the human body. These materials are often used for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes to support or substitute a natural process in the body. It is a widely researched field in terms of implantable devices, tissue engineering, biocompatibility, and material science. Biomaterials are currently in the form of medical implants, biosensors, drug delivery systems, regenerated human tissues, and sutures. 

In this course, you will learn about the different biocompatible materials, their manufacturing and testing methods, different classifications, and their applications.

3Medical Instrumentation and Signals

Medical instrumentation and signals are at the very core of the biomedical engineering discipline and concentrate on the use of technology in the healthcare industry to measure electrical signals from the human body. The electrical signals will then be studied and used for diagnostic purposes, or to monitor body conditions. Medical instruments range from the average thermometer and blood pressure cuff to electrocardiograms and ventilators used in hospitals. 

In this course, you will learn about the electrocardiogram, pacemaker, blood pressure cuff, invasive arterial and venous blood pressure sensors, pulse oximeter, ultrasonic blood flow meter, and fluoroscopy.

4Medical Informatics

Medical informatics integrate computer science and medical sciences to maximize outcomes for patients and the healthcare industry. It focuses on methods related to gathering, storing and retrieving patient data. 

Telemedicine, decision support systems, home care, medical signal processing, and healthcare databases are all relevant to medical informatics. 

In this course, you will learn about the concepts and tools in medical informatics required to improve the speed and quality of patient care delivery

5IOT in Healthcare

The internet of things in healthcare studies the interaction between monitors and trackers used to receive and transmit information. It allows doctors to monitor their patients remotely without having to schedule a consultation each time. This works with sensors that pick up signals and relay them through data networks. 

In this course, you will learn how IoT in healthcare simplifies the transfer of information between patients, doctors, hospitals, and health insurance companies together. You will also learn about how the transfer of information takes place, and the different remote monitoring systems involved.

6Product Design and Development

Designing a medical device is the fundamental step in its development. There are medical, software, electrical, and mechanical considerations that go into its design. Medical devices undergo much deliberation before manufacturing begins as they must comply with safety standards.  

In this course, you will learn about the different stages of developing a medical device (research, specification development, engineering the design, prototyping, and revisiting issues in the design process).

7Manufacturing

Manufacturing medical devices primarily includes the making of patient aids, dental products, diagnostic machines, prosthetics, and consumables. After medical devices are manufactured based on the design, they can be tested and verified for production into the healthcare industry. 

In this course, you will learn about common materials used in medical devices, machining, casting and molding, tolerance analysis, drawing and extrusion, and additive manufacturing.

8Regulatory Processes for Medical Devices

Regulatory processes in the field of biomedical engineering ensure that medical devices, instruments, and medicines are up to par with defined safety and regulatory standards. Before a medical device can be used in hospitals, it must receive approval from concerned authorities.

In this course, you will learn about the approach for regulatory pathways, safety considerations, efficacy testing, and ethical considerations

9Standards, Certifications, and Accreditations

Medical devices follow a set of standards defined by standardization bodies throughout the process of their development. Products can only come in contact with humans once they receive approval and certification. 

In this course, you will learn about the different regulatory and standardization bodies.


Electives that you can take up

1Radiology

Radiology is the field of medicine that uses medical imaging modalities in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions. Radiation or radioactive materials are used for imaging.  

In this course, you will learn about the different medical imaging techniques, x-ray equipment and radiation safety, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy equipment and quality assurance

2Imaging and Optics

Imaging and optics make use of light to acquire images of human body parts such as cells, organs, and tissues. 

In this course, you will learn about imaging using ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, medical image processing, and medical optics.

3In Vitro Diagnostics

In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are tests used to identify conditions in humans through the analysis of human samples. Since they are ‘in vitro’, the samples will be taken from the human body and studied outside, mostly in a petri dish or glass tube. These tests are either performed to monitor overall health, or detect the presence of a condition. Common examples include mucus swabs and blood glucose tests. 

In this course, you will learn about the principles of assay development, analytical instrumentation, preclinical and clinical trials, and IVD regulations

4Implants

Medical implants are placed inside or on the surface of the human body to support, strengthen, or replace a biological part. As implants come in direct contact with the body, they must be biocompatible, resistant to corrosion, and functional. Examples of implants include pacemakers, artificial heart valves, and coronary stents. 

In this course, you will learn about materials used in medical implants, their classification, different types of implant, and modern trends

5Electronics System Design

Biomedical instrumentation has electronic systems at the core of its functioning. It is therefore important to know how the electronic components are designed to work together, as this may come in handy when working with the device. 

In this course, you will learn about electronic system design, electromechanical devices, and PCB design

6Advanced Instrumentation and Biomedical Signal Processing

Biomedical instrumentation uses sensors and transducers to assess and treat patients by monitoring their physiological parameters. While sensors detect signals from the body, transducers convert them into electrical signals that can be understood by the instrument. 

In this course, you will learn about advanced medical sensors and transducers, critical care equipment, medi embedded systems, and ML for healthcare
