Applications for the above programs close by 1st Nov-2011 for March 2012 intake. Students are also encouraged to apply after the deadline and their applications will be considered for the subsequent intake.

Research Areas
Our research group primarily focuses on research areas related to bio-signal
processing, biomedical systems, nonlinear control and estimation. The research group will closely work with healthcare professionals and researchers, both locally and globally.

Current research topics/projects include
(i) Developing smart biomedical systems/instruments: – Tremor cancellation technology
development for smart surgical tools/devices etc.
(ii) EEG based clinical assessment tools: – Neuro-signal processing, ADHD treatment
monitoring, Rehabilitation assessment for stroke patients etc.
(iii) Brain-computer interface :- Assistive devices for rehabilitation
(iv) Nonlinear control and estimation: – Fault estimation in electric vehicles, sliding mode
control, sensor-less estimation for industrial drives etc.

Bachelor’s and Master’s degree holding candidates with strong academic background
from electrical/ electronic/ communications engineering (EEE, ECE, and EI) are encouraged to
apply. Related work experience will be advantageous. University requires scores from one of the English proficiency tests (IELTS - 6; TOEFL (IBT) - 85).
