The Biomedical Equipment Technology curriculum prepares individuals to install, operate,
troubleshoot, and repair sophisticated devices and instrumentation used in the healthcare
delivery system. Emphasis is placed on preventive and safety inspections to ensure
biomedical equipment meets local and national safety standards.
Coursework provides a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, electronics, chemistry,
anatomy, physiology, and troubleshooting techniques. People skills are very important
as well as the ability to communicate both in written and oral form. A biomedical
equipment technician is a problem solver.
Graduates should qualify for employment opportunities in hospitals, clinics, clinical
laboratories, shared service organizations, and manufacturers' field service. With
