Many advances in today’s healthcare industry come from the advances in the medical instrumentation used by doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians. Gateway Technical College can help you become a part of a healthcare team through an Electrical Engineering Technology - Biomedical Engineering Technology associate degree.
Biomedical engineering technicians install, test, calibrate and repair medical devices that are used to diagnose and treat patients. They also train medical staff on proper utilization of the equipment.
The associate degree EET- Biomedical Engineering Technology program is lab-oriented and hands-on learning is incorporated into all course work. Study areas include anatomy, physiology and the associated medical instrumentation, AC/DC principles, semiconductor theory, digital circuits, microprocessors, optoelectronics, communication and industrial electronics. The program also offers a set of “self-paced courses” during day and evening blocks of time. Students taking these classes can set their own schedule but the coursework must be completed by the end of the semester.
