Continued Education Program

Open to Industry, Entrepreneurs, Faculty & Students (outside IIT-B)

CEP - IITB : Biomedical Product Design & Development


This short 5-day hands-on certificate course is designed to give a detailed overview of Biomedical device development from an industry perspective. The program would touch upon the entire process from conception to development of devices from research, regulatory, clinical, marketing, engineering and legal perspective. The emphasis would be given on the engineering part starting from capturing the requirements and converting them into specifications which would translate into a functional module and later on into a prototype ready for testing and bringing you close to the market. The program will be a guide on how to start from scratch to develop a fully functional prototype for your idea/research. This is especially useful for young faculty and students who wish to apply to BIRAC Biotechnology Ignition Grant and other startup grants for career development. This will also benefit mid-level and senior-level academics who wish to teach Biomedical Engineering courses and set up labs in their colleges.
