About the Department
The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in the year 2018 with an intake of 60 students. At Excel Group Institutions, Biomedical Engineering Programme was formed with the primary objective of providing world class education in the field of Healthcare, while addressing the problems of Etiology and Epidemiology. Right from its inception, the department has been thriving with excellent infrastructural facilities for the following 3 core competency areas in Biomedical Engineering:
- Biosensors, Biomedical Instrumentation, Bio-signal Interpretation /Analysis and Computing Work group
- Biomechanics, Prosthetics and Rehabilitation Work Group
- Biochemistry, Microbiology, Clinical Studies and Cell/Tissue Engineering Work Group
These 3 Work groups require the involvement of both the faculty team and the aspiring professional students to meet the growing demands of the medical industry. The department imparts world class training, research and provides state-of-the-art healthcare solutions enhanced through computing facilities to the students. The department offers excellent academic environment with a team of highly qualified faculty to inspire the students and to develop their technical skills and inculcate a spirit of team work in them. The strength of the department lies in the practical tasks-oriented learning, the highly motivated students who understand the dynamics of the healthcare industry and tune their skills accordingly to serve humanity and society.

Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Excel Engineering College [EEC] under the umbrella of Sri Ramasamy Educational Trust, Excel Group of Institutions Founded in AY2018.We are a diverse, fast-growing community of faculty, with professional researchers, 240 under graduate students. Together with our dedicated and hard-working staff, including management support our educational and research missions, we are focused with practical oriented learning approach and tackling problems at the intersection of engineering, biology and medicine, with the goal of improving people’s health while driving the economic growth of our region, state and the nation.
Engineering aspirants you join us as a student will be contributing to our research and educational mission, which is to “Do Engineering, being human in inspiring minds to Advance Human Health.” This mission is well integrated within and supported by our technical team and biomedical device companies. Our RABBIT [Rejuvenate Applications in Biomedical Based Innovative Technology] BME association activities includes strong backup through biomedical academics and industry leaders, who help us fulfil this mission while providing guidance, advocacy and a broad perspective. Our department has strong ties to the Technical & Professional bodies of Engineering & Medicine, with many of our faculty members holding joint appointments or collaborating with clinicians to translate their technologies from the laboratory to the bedside.
I invite you to explore the rest of our department website and learn more about our degree programs, research opportunities and accomplishments, and our talented faculty. I also invite you to visit us on the beautiful 100 acres EXCEL campus or engage with us in other meaningful ways.
