Dear student,

With reference to your question on PG in medical electronics I gave you options for further studies in India. In addition, as you have mentioned you are interested in pursuing your further studies abroad, you can consider that option as well. Many American universities also have PG programmes in biomedical engineering, like John Hopkins Univ, Univ of Michigan, Boston Univ. etc. There are atleast 120 universities in the USA which offer this programme. To apply to any of these programmes you will need to clear the GRE and some Univs may additionall require TOEFL.

Some colleges in the UK offer an MSc in Medical Electronics and Physics. This is a 1 year programme. Here you generally need to take the IELTS exams for eligibility. You can look atQueen Mary College, University of Londonfor this programme. Also there is an MSc in Medical and Healthcare devices offered at University of Bolton, which might interest you. University of Liverpool has a ME in Medical Electronics and Instrumentation.

Thus there are many post graduation programmes this field of interest for you. I sugges you to kindlyhave a look at these programmes and make a decision which suits you the best.

Wishing you luck.

Dear student,



Thanks for posting your query on this portal.



Medical electronics is a very specialised field of engineering and I commend you for your interest in this field. This field entails working with the highly sophisticated and often very expensive equipment used in the healthcare industry.



A BE in this field will suffice for a job, however a PG degree will indeed be an added asset. With a PG degree you can start off at a higer level in a job and you also have the option to teach or work in research in future.





There are several colleges in India offering ME or MTech in medical electronics or bio-medical engineering.





For instance, under VTU there is a programme offering MTech in Bio-medical signal processing and instrumentation in Bangalore. There are 3-4 colleges in Bangalore that are affiliated to VTU and offer PG courses related to medical electronics or medical engineering.



Similarly Anna University in Chennai and Avinashlingam Univ in Coimbatore offer a PG programme in Medical Electronics.





Overall there are several programmes offering PG in this field. A PG would ensure that you work in the public or private sector in developing and maintaining medical equipment or even medical software. The medical device market is worth an approximate 1.85 billion USD and is growing at a rate of 15% every year. India is fast becoming the hub for medical services and thus this is a booming field which you can capitalise on. Some of the major players in this field in India are GE Healthcare, Wipro Medical, Larsen & Tubro, etc. You can also be employed in large healthcare conglomerates like Apollo Hospitals, Fortis Hospitalis, etc.



Again, congratulations for your interest in this new and upcoming field. I wish you the best in your endeavours.



Good luck!

Nandini Narayanan
