PROGRAM OVERVIEW
This is an interdisciplinary program integrating the fields of health science and engineering where students will apply engineering principles to the health care field. Specifically, students in this program will acquire skills from the areas of Electrical/Electronic and Mechanical Engineering and integrate them with Human Physiology. Students will be exposed to various hospital equipment and provided with the skills to troubleshoot, repair, and maintain that equipment. In addition, this program will expose students to medical devices, internal and external to the body, with the objective of participating in the development of these technologies.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
  • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Medical Equipment and Supplies Manufacturing Industry employs the greatest number of Biomedical Engineering Technologists.
  • Biomedical Engineering Technologists will be the single fastest growing occupation with a projected increase of 72% or 11,600 new jobs up to at least 2018.
  • Students obtain practical experience working on medical equipment in a laboratory setting.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Entry level positions in industries that design, manufacture, repair and/or sell biomedical implants, surgical instruments, medical devices and medical equipment. Employment opportunities may be found within hospitals and clinical facilities for scheduled preventative and corrective maintenance and safety inspections of medical devices.

YOUR INVESTMENT
