B.E. Biomedical Engineering is a 4-year UG course with a specialization in the field of biomedical and related aspects. The minimum eligibility criterion which most of the institutes ask for is a score of at least 50% (relaxable for reserved category candidates) at 10+2 or equivalent level.

Some of the popular colleges offering the course are:

The fee for the course varies between INR 50,000 to INR 4, 50,000 in India. The variation in fee is based on the location and nature of university (that is government, state/private/deemed etc.).

B.E. Biomedical Engineering admissions involve Common Entrance Test (CET) based selection method as well as merit-based selection criteria that is the percentage of marks obtained at 10+2 or equivalent level by the candidate. Most of the colleges who provide admissions through CET mechanism rely on the score of All India level common entrance exams like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE etc while some of them go for a separate entrance exam of their own (like BITSAT, LPUNEST etc).

The course is aimed at providing discipline-specific skills and knowledge to the UG students so as to equip them with a holistic knowledge of the subject that will enable them to persecute the learning in a practical sense.

Under Graduates in Biomedical Engineering have a wide range of opportunities to choose from in terms of job opportunities such as Bio-Medical Technician, Bio-Medical Engineer, Bio Chemist, Teacher etc. After completion of graduation, one may pursue further studies like M.E. and M.Phil in the said subject or may take up job opportunities associated. The average salary ranges between INR 12,000 to 15,000 a month for new graduates in the discipline.

Admission :

I got admission through Anna University Counseling Procedure and I chose this college because it is listed among one the best college for Biomedical Engineering in Tamilnadu. I have heard from my relatives about this college. The admission process can also be done with management quota. We can directly contact the college for getting admission. They also provide free education for some students who have secured good marks in their 12 th grade.

Faculty :

Best part about my department was the faculty members. Every one will help students in all sort of works. We can easily approach all faculties irrespective of their seniority. Even head of the department will be easily approachable. Teachers also identify each and every students talents in various domains and make us participate in many activities and competitions. Laboratories and libraries will be open all day for us to make use of it.

Campus Life :

I didn't relalize the value of my college when I was studying. But I miss my college life now. I realised that it was my best days. It was nore fun being a student there. College support me in my career growth. They support sports and NSS activities too. Many clubs will be there for English literature, photography, green gardening, NSS, Rotary etc. About gender ratio - girls will be greater in number.

The are many labs with more facilities and it can be used apart from lab hours. There is good relationship between the classmates and senior junior relationship was awesome.

Fee Structure And Facilities :

The fees structure is little high because my course is a self supported course. There are some possibilities to reduce the fees structure but the management does not take steps towards it. The fees is collected for each semester. Due to some schlorships my fees get reduced to some extent.

Faculty :

I could give a glimpse of my department, not about overall since I know those who handle us they could all help us get pass marks but no one has ever impressed to really love or created intrest over that subject. All they could do is to constantly conduct tests and provide materials to pass the exams. I wouldn't say they give their Maximum effort. This applies to majority of the staffs.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Course structure varies for department or the field, improvement must be made in the syllabus we all learn about existing old ones, the subjects we study should help us practically in real life such as jobs, research. etc. Exam structure we have to go through 3 exams 2 assessment test for 50 marks and a model exam for 100 marks before the main exam where paper is set from university.

Remarks :

I feel a bit pressure one forcing students to attend regular tests almost daily and it's moreover just result related. Would love if the college gave more importance to sports, not judging based on results and activities. Improvement of food in hostel mess. Forcing and putting unnecessary fine for delaying payment of college fees, usually they reduce the attendance percentage.
