|Description:||Health care environments have become more dependent on electronic medical diagnostic and therapeutic equipment which must be operated and maintained with great accuracy. Graduates of this program are part of an integrated health care team who install and maintain this equipment as well as their supporting computer systems. Graduates also assist other health care professionals in the optimization of equipment usage. The coordinated use and maintenance of this equipment has to be done in accordance with applicable codes, statutes and associated regulations.
The Electronics Engineering Technology (Biomedical) program is a biomedical engineering technology program with a strong foundation in electronics. Students enrolled in this program also receive training in the areas of biomedical instrumentation, microprocessor applications in the health care setting, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, health care and safety. This comprehensive program concludes with a practicum where students are provided with the opportunity to work in hospital-based biomedical departments or with medical equipment sales and service companies.
