Innovate solutions to address challenges in the fields of biology, health and medicine
Duration : 11 months
Biological Engineering is an interdisciplinary discipline focusing on the application of engineering principles to analyze biological systems and to solve problems related to living beings– plant, animal or microbial– using human-designed machines and systems, structures, processes and instrumentation. The discipline of bioengineering, though a recent development in the science and technology, is a rapidly maturing area of knowledge influencing human life never before. The program takes an integrated approach to advance the knowledge of its graduates towards developing an understanding of fundamental issues applying the interface of engineering, mathematics, biology, chemistry, and computer technology.
In addition to its applications in the field of agriculture, bioengineering is widely used to improve human health in all developed nations of the world. The early detection of diseases, detection of pathogens in human bodies using advanced tools and devices, carrying out complicated and risky transplants and surgeries, computer-based blood analysis, laser systems used during corrective eye surgeries, detecting the development of fetus and genetic abnormalities, artificially developed limbs like hips, knees and joints and other prosthetic parts, ultrasound, MRI and other medical imaging techniques, pacemakers, dialysis machines and other diagnostic equipment have been a reality only due to the knowledge of bioengineering. This has also heavily helped the medical professional community to effectively diagnose and treat ailments and carry out definitive analysis before treating their patients successfully.
