Q.- Why the Bio-Medical field is not developed in India???
Ans.- Bio-Medical Engineering means apply the knowledge in the field of Medical to improve the Human Health. If we look country wise then the Bio-Medical is so developed in U.S.A and there are different type of industries(Related to Bio-Medical) present. Because people want to improve there Health. The Economic condition is also good even very Good. And the people are Educated. Here,Educated means not by Degree/Diploma. So,they want to inwest there money in Health.
And in India the field of Bio-Medical is develop but not too developed. Here, the people are suffering from different type of disease.They don't want to improve there Health.They go to Hospital to overcome from diseases only.The Economic condition is also not developed.And the people are Educated by Degree/Diploma only, not by Knowledge.
The comparison of India with U.S.A is comparison like Sky and Earth and Comparison like Growing Plant and Tree.
The comparison is not Good with any Country. Still, I have faith that one day the field of Bio-Medical will develop in INDIA.
Q.- What do you mean by Bio-Medical Engineering???
Ans.- Bio-Medical Engineering means study of (Mechanical+Electrical+Chemical+Computer Science) Engineering with the relation of Human being. Here, Mechanical means study of different types of Machines which are used in the field of Medical. Electrical means study of different type of Circuits which are used in Machines and how the Machine works internally. Chemical means study of different type of chemicals which are widely used in the field of Medical as well as Pharmaceutical. And Computer Science means study of different types of Codes and Graphs as well as programs which are applicable in the field of Medical. And Biology means Biological terms.
Biomedical engineering is still in the development stage in India. One of the main reasons why development is slow is due to lack of integration between hospitals, research labs and universities. This kind of a research environment is yet to be established in India. Due to this, scope and job prospects in India for biomedical engineering students are not very good. The job vacancies by themselves are very less and most jobs are in sales and management division of pharma and biomedical instruments companies. If you are interested in research development within biomedical engineering, your best bet would be to join a prestigious research institution in India such as IISc and the IITs. If your goal is to work in industry, you will be better of studying abroad in USA, UK, Canada and Singapore.
Scope for biomedical engineering abroad in nations such as USA, UK, Singapore and Canada are excellent and pay packages are also impressive. These nations are at the forefront of research in biomedical engineering due to established collaboration between research centers, universities and hospitals. This has created the perfect environment for professors, researchers, scientists, surgeons, doctors and students to work together and come up with solutions to solve complex problems in medicine and healthcare. For a detailed description on the scope and various prospects of biomedical engineering in India and abroad, please refer to this article http://www.peshaa.com/Upcoming-fields/Scope-of-Biomedical-Engineering-in-India.html .
What is Scope in India Of Bio-Medical Engineering??
Well in India the scope of bio-medical engineering is not that much compared to mechanical engineering or civil engineering. For boys its fine because they can go for sales and servicing. For girls it is best to go for research, design and development etc. For that you have to get into a research institute which is not that easy. Bio-medical engineering has a huge scope abroad compared to the scope in India. There is scope in India and you can find a job because there are lots of hospitals and clinics but its not easy to get a very good start. And if you are into sales, it takes time for you to start your own distribution unless you are that good.
Bio-medical engineers are employed in industries,hospitals, research faculties of educational and medical institutes, in teaching, and in government regulatory agencies.You have a lot of scope in the servicing section because now a days its hard to find engineers for servicing. Just consider a country and imagine the number of hospitals, dental clinics, health clinics etc. Nothing functions without medical equipments. And every equipments need periodic servicing. Bio- medical engineers are also required in all medical clinics and hospitals for routine and breakdown maintenance. The work that comes under this are acceptance testing, maintenance planning, risk analysis,routine calibration, preventive maintenance, repairs, maintaining inventory of spare parts etc. The other works are design, development and research of devices, technologies etc. This includes modifying the existing equipment, software development, networking etc.
If you are interested in the research field, that too is good because everyone are trying to invent medical equipments which are flexible, reliable and easy to use. You can go for higher studies or internships. You can opt for M.Tech, MS or MBA. You can also do post graduation cheaply but with more value.
What is Bio-Medical???
You know that a bio-medical engineer deals with the sales and services of medical equipments. So there will be a huge scope in bio-medical engineering until world arrives to a situation where no hospitals are functional. If you are a little business minded you can make a huge profit in the sales section of medical equipments . My friend worked as a salesman of medical equipments for 2 months. Now he started his own business of distributing. He is making a huge profit.
