Medical Electronics


The Department of Medical Electronics is established in the year 2018-19 in B.E. in Medical Electronics affiliated to Anna University, Chennai with an intake of 60 students.. Medical Electronics Engineering advances knowledge in Engineering and Medicine is one of the most extensively growing fields of this era where people prefer the best and precise health service. Medical Science examines treats and cures almost all the disease meeting the need of accuracy by the people by using sophisticated and precise equipments. A medical electronics engineer can be called as the doctor of the equipments without which a doctor, a surgeon or a multi specialty hospital is helpless. He/She is the person, who knows the mechanism, operation and maintenance of these equipments.

Medical Electronics engineers are the one who design devices and measures to solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Many do research, along with life scientists, chemists, and medical scientists, to develop and evaluate systems and products such as artificial organs, prostheses (artificial devices that replace missing body parts), instrumentation, medical information systems, health management and care delivery systems.

Medical Electronics engineers also design devices used in various medical procedures, imaging systems such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and devices for automating insulin injections or controlling body functions. Some specialties within medical electronics engineering include biomaterials, biomechanics, medical imaging, rehabilitation engineering, and orthopedic engineering. Medical Electronics Engineering Technology appeals to students desiring to be technical, and, at the same time, devote their careers to saving lives by helping doctors, nurses and hospital patients. Graduates become medical electronics engineers and maintain, repair, and calibrate the electronic medical instruments used in healthcare. To advance in these careers, it is also important to develop skills in communicating problems, ideas and solutions to other employees.
