  • Students Corner

    To enhance the academic experience of the students, the department provides innumerable resources and opportunities to make a students’ campus experience worthwhile and stresses upon them the importance of building skill sets that will help in building a resume. Experts from outside are invited to share knowledge and expertise in various allied fields of Biomedical Instrumentation Engineering.

  • Alumni Corner
    Alumni Corner

    Alumni are the brand-ambassadors of the institution they graduated from. Many institutions honour their alumni as a way of connecting their successes with what the college has provided them. Creating a supportive alumni network is crucial to an institution’s success. Good alumni relationships bring many benefits to both the institution and the alumni. An alumni network is beneficial for the department, because, employed graduates more likely want to ‘give back’ to the department, by coming back and sharing their experiences with prospective and current students. The department is fortunate to have an alumni network through which alumni donate their valuable time to offer career support to current students. This enhances the student’s experience and gives them that competitive edge in today’s tough job market. Our alumni are our most loyal supporters.

    Nostalgia….

    About the department: The department of Biomedical Instrumentation Engineering and our mentor have vast experience and expanse knowledge in the modern field of Biomedical Engineering, which eventually has paved ways for us to face this challenging world. The department has helped us in shaping up our leadership qualities by providing ua an opportunity to express our innate passion and ideas. I had the privilege of being a part of this Prestigious Institution and the Department of Biomedical Instrumentation Engineering.
    ……Madhumitha 2007 passed out.

    College and especially, our department are doing their level best to the students in studies. Hostel facilities are good including food and accommodation. Love the campus environment and it’s the best compared to other colleges
    … Rajalakshmi R, 2012 passed out.

    I wanted to become an Engineer, but was not ready to give up my love for bio... It was then I bumped up on Biomedical. My 4 years of journey in Avinashilingam University is still fresh with full of memories. Friendly, supportive and experienced staff, golden batchmates and nice environment….what more u need to enjoy your college days. Each day spent gave me a new learning, practical session and hospital visits added more liveliness.

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I….
    I took the one less travelled by,
    And that has made all the difference. Robert Frost
    And finally, a proud BMIE graduate…… Kamala Chandrasekharan, 2009 passed out
