Biomedical Engineering Technology
Associate of Science (AS) in Biomedical Engineering Technology
Biomedical Engineering Technology appeals to students desiring to be technical, and, at the same time, devote their careers to saving lives by helping doctors, nurses and patients. Graduates become biomedical technicians who maintain, repair, and calibrate electronic medical instruments used in healthcare. To advance in these careers, students develop interpersonal, project management, and leadership skills.
This program will teach you troubleshooting skills in analog circuits, digital circuits, and processors. In addition, students must learn physiology, medical terminology and the operation of medical instruments such as EKG instruments, defibrillators, and incubators.

In the workforce, graduates are typically employed by hospitals or a hospital subcontractor. Some
graduates are employed by manufacturers of medical instruments or medical
devices, or as field support technicians, after earning experience in the
field. Although this program’s primary objective
is for students to enter the workforce after two years, some graduates choose
to either continue their college education, or pursue a degree in business.
