ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Prof. Hardik J. Pandya is an assistant professor in the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering, Division of Electrical Sciences, IISc Bangalore where he is developing Advanced Microsystems and Biomedical Devices Facility for Clinical Research and Biomedical and Electronic (10-6-10-9) Engineering Systems Laboratory to carry out cutting-edge research on novel devices to solve unmet problems in biology and medicine. He is recipient of prestigious Early Career Research Award from Science and Engineering Research Board, Government of India as well as a start-up grant of 228 Lacs from IISc. He has taught Design for Analog Circuits, Analog Integrated Circuits, VLSI technology, and Semiconductor Devices to undergraduate and graduate students from Electronic Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, and Applied Physics. He seek to understand and exploit novel ways of fabricating microengineering devices using glass, silicon, polymers and integrate with unusual classes of micro/nanomaterials. His research interests include integrating biology/medicine with micro- and nanotechnology to develop innovative tools to solve unmet clinical problems. His current research focuses on flexible sensors for smart catheters, microsensors, microfluidic devices, and microelectromechanical systems, all lately with an emphasis on cancer diagnosis, therapeutics, e-nose, and biomedical device technologies. Before joining IISc, he worked as a postdoctoral scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Maryland Robotics Center, University of Maryland, College Park and in the Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital–Harvard Medical School affiliated with Harvard-MIT Health Science and Technology. His work has resulted in several patents and publications. His work has been highlighted as “Breaking Research News” by The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and has been featured on IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering July 2016 issue cover image as well as IEEE TBME July 2016 feature article for the website and monthly highlights. The work on portable cancer diagnosis tool was also featured on Science Translational Medicine as an Editorial Choice, Breast Cancer Diagnosis, March 2016 and has been highlighted on CapeRay blog as “Biochips and Diagnostic tools” in April 2016. His work has been published in high-quality journals including Lab on a Chip, IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, Sensors and Actuators B, Biosensors and Bioelectronics, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Letters, Sensors and Transducers, and Journal of Micromechanics and Micromachining.
1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.
COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 3000 + GST
2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.
3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:
CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE
Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 9/12 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”
4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.
EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.
5. Results and Certification
After the exam, based on the certification criteria of the course, results will be declared and learners will be notified of the same. A link to download the e-certificate will be shared with learners who pass the certification exam.
