New Paper For Biomedical Engineering Introduced In GATE 2020

A new paper Biomedical Engineering (BM) is being introduced in GATE 2020.

Chennai:

A new paper Biomedical Engineering (BM) in Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is introduced from the year 2020. This is expected to unify undergraduate syllabus of Biomedical Engineering among several universities, and to help stimulating the growth of BME research and product development in India, said a statement from IIT Madras which organised the GATE exam last time.

GATE 2020 will be conducted for more than 20 subjects and it would be distributed over February 1, 2, 8 and 9 next year. The GATE examination centres are spread in different cities across India, as well as, in six cities outside India. The examination would be purely a Computer Based Test (CBT). 

The organizing institute for GATE 2020 is IIT Delhi and the syllabus for the new GATE paper can be found at: http://gate.iitd.ac.in/syllabi.php.

The challenges of BME graduates in India were discussed in a latest meeting held at IIT Madras, which is organized by Biomedical Engineering Group of Applied Mechanics Department, IIT Madras, along with representatives from several other IITs. The meeting was chaired by Prof. V. Jagadeesh Kumar, Dean (Academic Courses), IIT Madras, and co-chaired by Prof. Neelesh Vasa who was the GATE Chairman last year.

After analysing the issues, accoridng to the IIT Madras statement, it was decided to propose a new GATE paper for BME to solve some of the issues.

In the latest times, GATE has become the gateway for not only for various higher education but is also considered for entering Government institutions such as Public Sector Undertakings, Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) Laboratories, and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Centers in India besides a few educational institutes abroad. 

Speaking about the importance of this new GATE paper in Biomedical Engineering, Prof. M. Manivannan, Biomedical Engineering Group, Department of Applied Mechanics, IIT Madras, said, "This is a boon for everyone working in healthcare in India. This has potential to make the Biomedical Engineering as the most sought-out program in India as in other parts of the world."

As the organizer of the meeting, Prof. M. Manivannan noted, "Although IIT Madras organized this meeting, credit goes to all sister IITs that participated in the consultation, without which the new GATE paper would not be possible at all. This is a team effort."

The committee that met at IIT Madras proposed a syllabus that emphasized the fundamentals required for the BME graduates. Until now, Biomedical Engineering graduates could write two papers in GATE: IN (Instrumentation and Engineering), and EC (Electronics and Communication Engineering), which were closer to BME curriculum. 

In order to appear in any of the two streams (IN or EC), BME graduates need to prepare much more than their curriculum and compete with graduates from other streams in which the other students have specialized. Therefore, chances of BME students getting good ranks in GATE proved challenging. This reduced the chance of their higher studies and affected the medical device development in India.

"Medical instruments and equipment are vital for Modern medical practice. Chennai, as the healthcare capital of India, gets many advanced medical equipment released here before anywhere in the world. However, Biomedical Engineering, the backbone of medical instruments and equipment, is in need of more skilled manpower. This leads to dependence on the foreign manufacturers for repairing the equipment here in India. This new GATE paper in BME is intended to be one step in helping address this issue," the statement said.

Killexams : Delhi University likely to start certificate course on patent laws

The Delhi University is planning to start a certificate course on patent laws to help students to make their research a "tangible" product and give them basic knowledge about filing for patents

Topics
Delhi University | EU patent laws | Education ministry

The is planning to start a certificate course on patent laws to help students to make their research a "tangible" product and give them basic knowledge about filing for patents.

This would be the first time that such a course would be offered at the varsity.

Patent laws are taught as a part of the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) paper at the Delhi University's Law Faculty, and some science courses in the varsity also include a chapter on the topic.

The varsity has constituted a committee for framing the syllabus and other modalities for a course on patent laws.

A patent is a type of intellectual property that gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, or selling an invention.

The newly-constituted committee is headed by Daman Saluja, Professor at Medical Biotechnology Laboratory, Delhi University's B R Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Research.

Saluja said the course will help the students understand what should be kept in mind while filing for a patent, as many students are not aware of what is patentable and what is not.

"In higher education, there is a lot of research that has a tangible outcome, however, people aren't aware of it How to make their research a tangible product? People do not know about patent rules and patent laws. DU is planning to start a certificate course in this regard that will fill this gap," she added.

The certificate course will likely be a three-four month programme during which the students will be taught basics about patent laws and what to take care of while filing for the patent, Saluja said.

The course will come in handy for science students who want to learn about patent laws for their research, she said.

Saluja said there is a dearth of knowledge about the patent laws and that is the reason the country lags in getting innovations patented.

Moreover, the professor said, the process for filing for a patent is quite lengthy and complex.

"We are not aware of what terms we should use (while filling for a patent), and what terms we cannot. The filing (for patent) is complicated. It is not just simple filing a form... after one of two days, you have to file a request for its examination. And if you want an early examination, you can make a request. If you file it through a lawyer, then it is not difficult, but lawyers charge a lot," she said, adding the course will help in filling the void created by lack of knowledge.

Saluja said the course will likely be in a hybrid manner (both online and offline) and it might be offered multiple times a year.

The others details and syllabus of the course are being worked out. The committee is set to meet next week, she added.

"I am going to hold a meeting next week and we have a plan to finalise the course in the next two meetings," Saluja said.

In May, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also suggested that the should start a short-term diploma course on the patent process.

The times are changing. Our country's inventions do not get patented. DU can start a short-term diploma course on the patent process, Pradhan had said during a three-day international seminar at the varsity.

In most universities and law institutes, the patent laws are taught as a part of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and not separately.

There are only a few institutes in the country, including Indian Institute of Patent and Trademark and International Intellectual Property Consulting Firm, which provide a separate certificate or diploma courses on patent laws.

DU Professor Alka Chawla, who teaches intellectual property, administrative law and jurisprudence, said patent laws are a very relevant subject and should be taught in all science courses and not just as a certificate course.

"As innovations are coming up. We really need people to know patent laws. It is a welcome step. Market-oriented research is also important. This is a very relevant subject and it should be taught in all the science courses and not just as a certificate course," Chawla said.

"It is not taught as a separate course but chapters as part of IPR in the most university. In law faculty, we have been teaching this for over 40 years," she added.

Killexams : Monash College Programs can Transform A/L disappointment into an opportunity for success

After 2 years of hard work leading up to a highly competitive examination, the results of the Sri Lankan A/L examinations are yet pending. While a small number of students will have the chance to celebrate their success in securing a place in local university, there will still be many thousands of students who will be unsuccessful at the A/Ls, or in some cases, who are unable to follow their desired university course due to an insufficient Z-score.

As for the London A/L students their fate may have been decided for those who have been successful with their examinations. But there will also be students who were not as successful and who feel disheartened believing their chances of obtaining higher education have ended
These students can still hold on to their dreams as Monash University offers a pathway into the most sought after degrees in the world.

The Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) programme offered by ANC Education in Sri Lanka is designed as an academic bridge between a student’s highest secondary qualification and their preferred destination degree at Monash University. Successful completion of the MUFY programme with the required grades ensures that the student will enter into their Monash degree of choice.
As a member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight universities, Monash University has made its mark as a university of high standards for quality and a degree from Monash is a student’s first step towards career success. Offering nearly 800 programmes from 10 specialized Faculties, with campuses in Australia, Malaysia and South Africa a student is provided a range of opportunities with Monash.

Students further have the option to commence most degrees locally at ANC thereby making a substantial cost-saving and allowing certain degrees to be completed for as low at US$ 30,000^.
The MUFY programme offers subjects tailored to take the student to his or her degree of choice. What makes MUFY different from Sri Lankan A/Ls is that while A/Ls are based on a syllabus spread over 2 years and one final examination, the MUFY syllabus is divided into 2 semesters with examinations at the end of the semester and a student’s overall grade determined by the cumulative average of performance in both semesters. Even for a London A/Level student who has had exams at the end of each year the time period for a MUFY semester is just 4 months which provides a student a more focused syllabus to deal with. Emphasis is also placed on the teaching of academic style English bringing students up to the expected standards in international universities.

The interactive course structure which emphasizes both internal and exam-based assessment mirrors the university-style system of learning so that the student not just progresses to a desired degree but is also equipped with the necessary skills to cope with university education. We also have a highly qualified faculty who maintain the Monash standards in terms of delivery and pass rates. Hence don’t miss this opportunity to enable your child to enter a world-class university. For more information please contact 0777 44 99 55. Enrolments are now on for the February 2012 intake.

Killexams : Intercalated BMedSci in Molecular Medicine

Course Suspended

The Practice of Medicine is changing, and both Hospital Doctors and General Practitioners require an understanding of scientific and clinical courses previously considered to be of benefit only to researchers.

The BMedSci Molecular Medicine course aims to respond to these changes by identifying the importance of the biosciences to clinical medicine and providing an awareness and competence in the use of modern biomedical technologies. Most BMedSci core teaching takes place in the lecture rooms and laboratories in 51/53 Bart's Close. There are dedicated teaching rooms and an adjoining laboratory with good facilities where the core module laboratory work takes place.

Core teaching covers molecular biology, laboratory methods, ethics, immunology and imaging. Students are encouraged to use information methods such as the Internet for their studies. Following the New Year option module teaching starts which in turn is followed by a research project. These aspects are done in various research laboratories on all campuses.

In 2013/14 option modules including the long established courses on Neuroendocrinology, Immunology, Inflammation Science, Clinical Pharmacology and a new option in Medical Genetics were available to students as well as Forensic Medical Sciences.

Structure and timing

Summary of course units

Students studying for the BMedSci programme will complete a 45-credit core module, a 30-credit taught option module which the students can choose and a 45-credit intercalated research project. Specific guidance on the selection of option modules that match research projects will be provided to students by tutors and the programme director.

Core Module: Mid-September to Mid December 2014 (45 credits) Concludes with a written exam.

A patent is a type of intellectual property that gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, or selling an invention. The newly-constituted committee is headed by Daman Saluja, Professor at Medical Biotechnology Laboratory, Delhi University’s B R Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Research.

Saluja said the course will help the students understand what should be kept in mind while filing for a patent, as many students are not aware of what is patentable and what is not.

"In higher education, there is a lot of research that has a tangible outcome, however, people aren't aware of it… How to make their research a tangible product? People do not know about patent rules and patent laws. DU is planning to start a certificate course in this regard that will fill this gap," she added.

The certificate course will likely be a three-four month programme during which the students will be taught basics about patent laws and what to take care of while filing for the patent, Saluja said. The course will come in handy for science students who want to learn about patent laws for their research, she said.

Saluja said there is a dearth of knowledge about the patent laws and that is the reason the country lags in getting innovations patented. Moreover, the professor said, the process for filing for a patent is quite lengthy and complex.

"We are not aware of what terms we should use (while filling for a patent), and what terms we cannot. The filing (for patent) is complicated. It is not just simple filing a form... after one of two days, you have to file a request for its examination. And if you want an early examination, you can make a request. If you file it through a lawyer, then it is not difficult, but lawyers charge a lot," she said, adding the course will help in filling the void created by lack of knowledge.

Saluja said the course will likely be in a hybrid manner (both online and offline) and it might be offered multiple times a year. The others details and syllabus of the course are being worked out. The committee is set to meet next week, she added.

"I am going to hold a meeting next week and we have a plan to finalise the course in the next two meetings," Saluja said. In May, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also suggested that the Delhi University should start a short-term diploma course on the patent process.

“The times are changing. Our country’s inventions do not get patented. DU can start a short-term diploma course on the patent process,” Pradhan had said during a three-day international seminar at the varsity. In most universities and law institutes, the patent laws are taught as a part of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and not separately.

There are only a few institutes in the country, including Indian Institute of Patent and Trademark and International Intellectual Property Consulting Firm, which provide a separate certificate or diploma courses on patent laws. DU Professor Alka Chawla, who teaches intellectual property, administrative law and jurisprudence, said patent laws are a very relevant subject and should be taught in all science courses and not just as a certificate course.

"As innovations are coming up. We really need people to know patent laws. It is a welcome step. Market-oriented research is also important. This is a very relevant subject and it should be taught in all the science courses and not just as a certificate course," Chawla said. "It is not taught as a separate course but chapters as part of IPR in the most university. In law faculty, we have been teaching this for over 40 years," she added.
