Professor and Head - Department of Medical Electronics
The department of Medical Electronics was established in 1992 to expand its academic horizon to the fast-growing field of healthcare technologies. The college has laid its focus to impart education in the field of medical electronics and life sciences to translate it into real world applications. With experienced and well-qualified faculty (50% doctorates, and 40% pursuing PhD programs, with an average experience of 23 years, the department has been able to contribute a large pool of talented biomedical engineers into the industry. The current intake for the undergraduate programme is sixty, and the department is also offering an M.Tech programme in Biomedical Signal Processing and Instrumentation since 2013.
With the belief that collaboration is everything, the department has networked with premier research institutes like Stanford University, Oxford University, Masstricht University, Indian Institute of Science, Narayana Nethralaya, Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences and many more.
