The department is an inter-disciplinary rivulet which aims at imparting knowledge and skills to the students in the field of Instrumentation and its associated areas such as Signal & Image Processing, Robotics, MEMS, Artificial Neural Networks, Java Programming, . The Department has well equipped and state-of-the art facilities for Research & Development. The Department has habitual communications with Hospitals, industries for training, internship, projects and research in the emerging fields of Biomedical Engineering. The Department has been awarded with a status of permanent affiliation to Anna University and won the Platinum Medal in the year 2015 by AICTE-CII survey.
The faculty members are well qualified and experienced which accomplishes University ranks consecutively. The department has successfully completed with major Research Projects worth of Rs.40 Lakhs from SERB-DST and ICMR, Govt. of India. The Faculty members were awarded with Travel Grants (ICMR, DST) for International Conferences, thus making collaboration and sharing knowledge with eminent. Besides teaching and learning, the Department has been active in innovation and has accolades on Motorola FAER, Digital India, KPIT, AICTE- smart India Hackathon Digital India Innovation contests. Our Department Students have footprints in Indian Air-force as a Pilot, Army officer. With all-around achievement, the Department strives towards diversified acquaintance in medical practices to serve for the welfare of humanity.
