Biomedical Engineering

IIT Kharagpur has released GATE 2022 Biomedical Engineering Syllabus online on the official website. No new changes have been made to the syllabus. GATE 2022 Biomedical Engineering Syllabus is divided into ten sections. With the revision in GATE 2022 Biomedical Engineering Syllabus last year, topics such as stability analysis, time domain, frequency domain analysis, etc. had been removed from the core subject. For GATE Biomedical Engineering, the core subject carries 72% weightage. However, the sections of Engineering Mathematics and General Aptitude carry 13% and 15% weightage respectively. 

The candidates who choose Biomedical Engineering as their first paper can choose one among Biotechnology (BT), Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC), Instrumentation Engineering (IN) or Life Sciences (XL) as their second papers. 

GATE 2022 Biomedical Engineering Syllabus includes sections such as Engineering Mathematics, Electrical Circuits, Signals and Systems, Analog and Digital Electronics, Measurements and Control Systems, Sensors and Bio- instrumentation, Human Anatomy, and Physiology, Biomechanics, Medical Imaging Systems, and Biomaterials. To secure high scores in the first attempt, the students need to practice a good amount of mock tests before appearing for GATE 2022.
