Biomedical Engineering is an emerging multidisciplinary STEM field that applies the principle
of computer/electronics/mechanical engineering and material science in health sciences to help doctors
and physicians in their healthcare practices. The department prepares the students to face real life
problems by providing internship and industry courses supplementing classroom instructions and lab
To be recognized by the society at large as an excellent department, offering quality higher education in Biomedical Engineering and thereby enable the graduates to serve and strengthen the Indian healthcare sector and excel at an international level.
• Infuse critical thinking skills by providing strong foundation which enables them for continuing education
• Educate the students with state of the art cutting edge technology to compete in global arena
• Create research environment in the state of the art biomedical engineering with the support of well experienced and respected faculty
Pedagogy is a fancy word these days, though existing from long back. It refers to the practice of integrating particular teaching strategies and techniques with content delivery. In the BME department at Vel tech, we follow different pedagogies based on the content. This makes the students participate actively in classroom activities which enhances their knowledge and skill. While it does away with monotonous learning, it also improves student-teacher communication.
