Scope after Biomedical engineering


Biomedical engineering combines the engineering principles with the principles of Biology and Medicine. Biomedical engineering is an emerging field of study in India. There are not many companies who recruit biomedical engineers. But due to the mushrooming growth of healthcare facilities and hospitals, a new trend has started with biomedical engineering as a discipline.

Eligibility criteria for Biomedical engineering

The candidate must have passed 10+2 with Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as subjects. There is a requirement of 50% marks in 10+2. But this requirement varies from university to university. In order to get admission in premier universities like the IITs, one has to clear their Joint entrance exam.

Higher studies in Biomedical engineering

Candidates can opt for higher studies in biomedical engineering stream after their B.Tech in biomedical engineering. Many universities abroad have specialized courses in biomedical engineering especially in developed countries.

Scope of biomedical engineers abroad

Biomedical engineers who work with sophisticated biomedical equipments and adapt to the needs of the physician and hospitals are in great demand abroad. These engineers also develop the hardware and software required in the hospitals.

Job prospects of biomedical engineers in India

The job prospects for biomedical engineers are very high. There are diverse areas and fields, in which they can work. They can work in areas like medical equipments manufacturing, molecular, cellular and tissue engineering. They can work in both government as well as private sector. They are easily absorbed in big hospitals and healthcare research institutes. They are employed in hospitals to look after the biomedical equipments. Such professionals also engage themselves in research activities by working with doctors. They work in areas such as physiology, medicine, and computational mechanics and invent new technologies. They can also be employed in research work. Many private companies develop vast number of equipments and devices which are later used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, government institutions and research facilities.

Some of the common job types for biomedical engineers are:

  • Clinical Engineers
  • Biomechanics Engineer
  • Bioinstrumentation Engineer
  • Biomaterials Engineer
  • Business Managers
  • Professors
  • Research Scientists
  • Technical Writers
  • Systems Physiology Engineers

Some of the employment areas for biomedical engineers are:

  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • Government Agencies
  • Design and Patenting
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industries
  • Academic Institutions
  • Scientific and ┬áResearch facilities

Thus, we see that the scope of biomedical engineers is on the rise. With the increase in population, the number of people who require healthcare facilities is on the rise. So, we can conclude that there is immense scope of biomedical engineers in the times to come.
