India has a population of 1.2 billion. In order to establish bioengineering infrastructure and environment to fulfill healthcare needs of such a large population, our society needs a large number of bioengineers.
The objective of commencing the School of Bioengineering at MIT University is to initiate small steps towards fulfilling these needs by training the youth in the upcoming integrated, multi-disciplinary field of bioengineering.
The focus of the school will be on foundational research at the grassroots level to transform the biomedical and biotechnology industry in India from a pure customer- centric or a purely research-centric industry to a manufacturing base by transforming research into commercially viable products. Following are the specific objectives of MIT School of Bioengineering:
- Prepare students for a career or graduate study via application of engineering principles to medicine and biology.
- Enable graduates to be industry-ready through excellent training in innovative courses designed to fulfill industry requirements.
- Inculcate a hands-on approach by use of Project Based Learning (PBL) method of pedagogy.
- Develop and promote entrepreneurship and associated ecosystem in the field of Bioengineering.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the MIT School Of Bioengineering Sciences & Research.
