Best Engineering BTech and Management College in Kolkata West Bengal | NSEC - Department of Biomedical Engineering
  ::  Department of Biomedical Engineering (NSEC)  ::  

Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a highly demanded interdisciplinary and emerging field today. It lies at the cross-section of Medicine, Biological Science and Engineering. This exciting engineering program bridges the gap between Medical sciences and Engineering. Biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with medical and biological sciences and provide technological solutions to the medical field. They design, innovate and create equipment, devices, smart healthcare systems and many other health-related accessories that make our lives more comfortable and simpler. Without sophisticated medical devices or systems, it is impossible to provide quality treatment to the patients in the health care unit. Biomedical Engineering (BME) is an extremely broad field with many opportunities for specialization or customized applications, directly linked to the healthcare industry and institutions. The job market also witnesses exponential growth in this arena.

Biomedical Engineering Program at Netaji Subhash Engineering College (NSEC) [AICTE approved, MAKAUT (formerly known as WBUT) is an NBA accredited full-time 4 years B. Tech program, which is approved by AICTE, India and affiliated with MAKAUT, WB. This program started in the year 2003 for the first time in the eastern region of India with an intake of 30 students.

This program has been continuously accredited by the NBA (National Board of Accreditation) since 2016 due to its overall excellence in all dimensions starting from innovative learning activities to student placement in different sectors. The BME program has always maintained its level of brilliance which resulted in the NBA accreditation again and again in the years 2019 and 2024.

The student needs in-depth all-around knowledge of both engineering and biology to understand this challenging and interesting engineering discipline.

The department provides in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge which integrates electrical, electronics, instrumentation, and computer science engineering with medical sciences. Several special lecture sessions and seminars are arranged where students find opportunities to interact with professionals and academicians from reputable industries and educational institutions.

Besides these, the Department arranges Value Added Training (VAT), Industrial training, Soft-skill training and many internship programs in healthcare units to familiarize students with real-life situations and make them industry-ready.
