Admissions through JEE and NEET
Biomedical Engineering is the fastest growing engineering that deals with medicine, education, and human quality of life issues. It is an interdisciplinary field that integrates scientific principles of physics, chemistry biology and mathematics with the other conventional engineering fields (e.g. mechanical, electrical, chemical, and computer engineering) and new breakthrough methods developed in recent years.
Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (TIET) Patiala offers an International Biomedical Engineering Program (BME) from the session 2019-20. The institute has signed an MOU with University of Toledo (UT), USA https://www.utoledo.edu/engineering/bioengineering/. This is a joint program between Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering Department, TIET Patiala and Bioengineering Department, University of Toledo, USA. The students under 2+2 program will get a degree from Univ. of Toledo.
In line with its mission to provide world-class educational experience by incorporating global best practices in its format, TIET through its Center for International Relations announces a credit transfer International Engineering programme with University of Toledo, Ohio, USA. This unique program is designed to give students an international experience, prepare them for professional careers, and expose them to the state of the art facilities and cutting-edge research in the fields of biomedical engineering. The program accentuation on engineering and entrepreneurship designed for students planning to move straightforwardly into the industry/research organization after completing the program. The primary focus of the program is on the development of medical devices and its functional application in the creation of new and novel healthcare devices.
Undergraduate degree from USA University
This is a joint program between Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering Department, TIET Patiala and Bioengineering Department, University of Toledo (UT), USA, in which students can study 2 years at TIET and 2 years at UT and will get an undergraduate degree in Bioengineering from UT.
Affordable Fee Structure
In this program, the student will pay fees at TIET for the first two years of the program. For years 3 and 4, eligible students will pay the relevant UT fee for the course of study. By choosing this approach the student will pay substantially lower fees than their international counterparts who opt for a four-year program at UT. The students accepted at UT will also get a scholarship of $8500 per year based on CGPA obtained at the end of 2nd year at TIET for years 3 and 4(based on the performance of year 3) of their study at UT. During their study at UT the students will go three paid Co-operatives (Co-Op) in industry and the average Co-Op stipend is $6000 per Co-Op.
Get ready to contribute to the work/job from day one. Our program graduates benefit from hands-on experiences from Co-operatives (Co-Op) to senior design projects. Three Co-Op is compulsory for each student to get a degree from UT and that will facilitate the students to move straightforwardly into the industry/research organization after completing the program.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Plenty of our program faculties doing research in the field of biomedical engineering, therefore, students have research opportunities that will expose them to advanced technologies and hands-on training.
MS degree in 5 years
Our unique relationship with Toledo University would help students to earn an MS in Bioengineering from Toledo University in just five year’s time, subject to meeting the required academic requirements of UT.
This unique program provides an opportunity for the students to tap the resources and expertise available in the USA and as a result, the students have higher chances of good employment. The average placement of the Bioengineering program at UT is $60000 per annum.
Through NEET and JEE (Mains) with both PCM (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) and PCB (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) students eligible for admission.
The number of jobs in the biomedical engineering field has exploded. Employers love biomedical engineers graduates for their breadth of knowledge and hands-on Co-Op (Co-operative Education) and laboratory experience.
Some of the Biomedical Engineers employers are:
The postgraduate program in Power Systems is started in Electrical and Instrumentation Department in the year 2006. The Electrical Engineering programs of the department are accredited by National (NBA) and international (ABET) boards. By joining this program, the students will have opportunity to specialize in the most sought after disciplines through electives namely; Real time Systems, Smart grids, Renewable Energy, High Voltage technology, intelligent algorithms etc. To encourage the students in research based program in Power Systems, the institute offers a stipend of Rs 5000/month in addition to AICTE scholarship to GATE qualified students and Rs. 10,000/month to non-GATE students. The M.E. (Power Systems) program offers an opportunity for one year industry internship, which helps the students to enhance research and academic skills and further provides an opportunity to get pre-placement offer. The placement office extends the support to invite slots for one year internship in various MNCs R&D organisations and IITs. In previous years, the students got the opportunity to work for their internships in C.G. Power, Savita Oil technologies, Tata Motors, LG Electronics, IIT Mandi, Azure Power, Stryker global technology etc.. The graduates of the program are well placed in various PSUs, Power grid, regional electricity board, Energy Efficiency board, and MNCs like Tata Motors, TCS, Reliance, LG Electronics, IBM, L & T, Metro, Siemens India, CPRI, Maruti Suzuki, Punj Lloyd, Samsung Engineering, Philips, Infosys, Wipro technologies etc. Further, few students got an opportunity to pursue their research carrier in various IITs.
The Department of Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering established in 1956 at Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology started the program of Master’s in Engineering in Electronic Instrumentation and Control in the year 2003. The program is designed exclusively on 1+1 pattern with one year course work and one year project (either as internship with industry or as research work in TIET). This helps the students helps the students to enhance research and academic skills and further provides an opportunity to get pre-placement offer. The Institute offers Rs 5000/month in addition to AICTE scholarship for GATE qualified students. To encourage the higher studies for non GATE qualified students, we offer Rs 10,000/month.
Our students have done successfully done their internship in MNCs like C.G. Power, Stryker global technology etc. The students of program have been placed in MNCs like Stryker global technology, Maruti R&D etc. Further, few students got an opportunity to pursue research carrier in various institutes of international repute like EPFL Switzerland.
