Healthcare has become one of India’s largest sectors both in terms of revenue and employment. India Health presents an opportunity to all stakeholders in search of a platform that facilitates business interaction, learning and development, and access to the right healthcare entities, authorities and associations in a fast-emerging economy. Healthcare comprises hospitals, medical devices, clinical trials, outsourcing, telemedicine, medical tourism, health insurance and medical equipment.

The healthcare industry is one of the world's largest and fastest-growing industries. Consuming over 10 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) of most developed nations, health care can form an enormous part of a country's economy.

The Health Care industry has been growing at a rapid pace in the past few years. With an annual growth rate of 30%. The Indian Healthcare Industry is estimated at US$22 billion and the Medical device market is estimated at US $ 1.85 billion and growing at 15% per annum. Thus with the rapid pace of growth comes the ever increasing demand for highly skilled and well trained Medical Electronics  Engineering work force.

The medical device industry is poised for steady growth, with global annual sales forecast to rise by over 5 percent a year and reach nearly US$800 billion by 2030.  By 2030 the leading medical device players will be those that play an active role in delivering value by connecting with customers, patients and consumers (end users).

We are in the midst of one of the most challenging times in health care history,  facing the risk of rise of Covid 19 virus, resource constraints. These challenges demand connected health IT solutions that integrate, collect, combine and deliver quality data for actionable insights to help improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and improve access to quality care, prevention and diagnosis, treatment, recovery and home care. The cloud-based platform uses Internet of Things (IoT) technology  to collect and analyse data from multiple devices and could ultimately support hundreds of millions of interconnected patients, devices and sensors.

The Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative is encouraging domestic manufacture of medical devices and helping lower the prices patients pay for products such as stents and implants, which in the past were imported. At the same time, in India the policy environment and regulators need to accommodate technological interventions such as the growth of online pharmacies with the requisite controls in place, according to the experts.

This program builds knowledge and skills in the students to perform in many job roles, as to name a few:

  • Project Engineer
  • R&D Engineer
  • Biomedical Maintenance Engineer
  • Service Engineer
  • Production Engineer
  • Technical Consultant
  • Coach / Trainer
  • Business unit -Head
  • Design Manager
  • Team leader
  • Quality Manager
  • Entrepreneur
