Over the past five decades, healthcare delivery has increasingly become technology driven – be it development of new drugs, vaccines or medical devices. Innovative solutions to healthcare can be developed with a cross-disciplinary approach with systematic training, in which, students with a background in engineering and physical sciences are trained in biological sciences and clinical practices.

The M.Tech. in Clinical Engineering and the Ph.D. (major: Biomedical Devices and Technology) programmes aim to develop capable people, who will go further to make significant contributions as high-level engineers, researchers, entrepreneurs, academicians, etc. in the relevant areas. It is a unique undertaking and exploits the innate strengths and facilities of the three institutes — SCTIMST, IITM and CMC. These organizations together hold strong backgrounds in Technology, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Sciences.

Applications for MTech should be made at the IIT Madras MTech Admissions Page. (click here to download)
