Opportunities galore for Biomedical Engineering Students
Students of biomedical engineering should invent medicines for killer diseases , K.R. Radhakrishnan, Professor and Head, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rajalakshmi Engineering College Chennai said here on Monday.
Inaugurating the two – day national – level workshop on “Novel Innovations in Biomedical Engineering” organised by the Students’ Chapter of the Indian Society for Technical Education and Department of Biomedical Engineering, Mr. Radhakrishnan called upon the students to spend their energy in inventing new medicines.
Besides this, students were asked to be aware of the latest developments in the field of biomedical engineering.
Multinational Companies are investing in large scale all over the world for manufacturing life – saving medicines. Hence, the opportunities for the Biomedical Engineering graduates are bright.
Students should make use of the available opportunity in a right way and at the right time.
Biomedical Engineering stream came into being 15 years ago, after a prolonged debate among the experts in the field of Medical and Engineering departments, he adds.
Presiding over the inaugural session Dr. G. Ranganath, Principal, Adhyamaan Engineering College said the Biomedical Engineering course was started at the college during the academic year 2003-2004 with the student strength of 30. Now it has been raised to 60.
Since introduction, the course has got tremendous response from the students. Many students were placed in MNCs even before completion of their degrees.
