Electrical Engineering Technology - Biomedical Equipment Major (BMT)

Electrical Engineering Technology - Biomedical Equipment Major (BMT)

Graduates of the program Electrical Engineering Technology - Biomedical Equipment Major are welcomed in hospitals and companies where medical equipment is designed, tested, installed, and operated because of their strong background in electronics and information systems along with knowledge of specialized biomedical equipment. 

Graduates of the Biomedical Equipment Major earn an Associate of Applied Science degree and are prepared to take on the challenging tasks of hospital healthcare technology management, maintaining multi-million dollar equipment, such as MRI, CT, sonogram, X-ray, and other medical equipment. The curriculum also provides an effective foundation for transfer into a related bachelor’s degree program.
