B.Sc. in Renal Dialysis Technology is a 3- year undergraduate degree in engineering. Aspiring candidates with a +2 (Medical) or equivalent qualification are eligible to apply for the course. The course is designed to prepare students to administer haemodialysis treatments for patients with renal failure, under the supervision of a nurse or physician. The course imparts essential instruction to enrolled students in basic anatomy and physiology, dialysis preparation, dialysis prescription interpretation, extracorporeal circuit, dialyzer setup and maintenance, patient preparation, equipment monitoring, venepuncture and local anaesthesia administration, taking vital signs, documentation and communication, safety and sanitation, emergency interventions, and professional standards and ethics.

Candidates having qualified 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry & either of Biology and Biology/ Maths as main subjects with a minimum aggregate score of 60% in classes X and XII are eligible to apply for the course. This percentage criterion, however, may vary across institutes.
Admission to the course is made possible by means of any of the following 2 ways:
1. Examination Pathway: Admissions through UPESEAT for up to 80% of the seats. This mode of admission requires a JEE Mains qualification besides a minimum aggregate score of 60% in at the Higher & Senior Secondary levels (classes X and XII) with Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics as the main subjects at the Senior Secondary level. JEE Mains cutoff is announced after the declaration of the JEE Mains results.
2. Non- Examination Pathway: Admissions through Board Merit / JEE Mains Score for up to 20% of the sea. This mode of admission requires a minimum aggregate score of 80% at the Higher & Senior Secondary levels (classes X and XII) with Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics as the main subjects.
Renal failure, or kidney diseases, results in the accumulation of excess of wastes and fluids in the blood that Dialysis Technicians help remove through the operation of a dialysis machine. Dialysis Technicians must have a thorough knowledge of how the dialysis machine functions and interacts with the human body. They are also responsible for cleaning and sterilizing the dialysis machine.
Dialysis Technicians perform several other duties under the supervision of nurses and doctors, including recording patient information and measuring a patient's vital signs before, during, and after dialysis. Because these technicians come into contact with blood, they must understand and practise all safety precautions and have a thorough awareness of HIV and hepatitis prevention.
