Bioengineering is an amalgamation of biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Its uniqueness lies in its highly interdisciplinary nature, where it encompasses knowledge from a wide spectrum, ranging from natural science domains, electronics, material science, computer science, mechanical engineering to simulation of systems. It blends diverse knowledge of science, engineering and technology to solve real world problems of environment and health.
The Bioengineering programme covers the domains of Biotechnology such as genetic engineering, drug development, food technology, stem cell & regenerative medicine, tissue culture, nano biotechnology, genomics, protein engineering, synthetic biology and systems biology. The biomedical sectors covered under this programme are neural engineering, rehabilitation engineering, bio mimetics, biosensors, biomechanics and implant design, tissue engineering and development of artificial tissues and organs, bioinstrumentation and bio signals and image processing. By choosing bioengineering one may get the essence of all these diversified and multidisciplinary domains.
