The Biomedical Equipment Technology concentration under the Engineering Technology degree program prepares individuals to fill an important role in today’s specialized medical industry. Biomedical equipment, which is vital to human life, is found in clinics, hospitals, and many doctors’ offices. The complex and highly specialized equipment in these facilities is valued in millions of dollars. The Biomedical Equipment Technology program is designed to prepare the student to meet the demands of this exacting profession by teaching them the electronics skills needed to inspect, calibrate, maintain, troubleshoot and repair medical equipment. Computer Networking courses are also part of the curriculum, as technicians are often responsible for the transmission of data from biomedical equipment to computer stations through local and wide area networks. Select courses are also transferable to select four-year colleges and universities with similar programs.
This program is designed for the student who does not intend to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program.
