Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering Technology
Dr. Peilin Fu
The impact of modern electronics technology in the growing field of medical instrumentation and device area mandates the needs for trained engineering technology professionals, to design, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair medical instruments and devices. This biomedical engineering technology program will cover areas such as electronic circuit design and analysis, digital circuits including microprocessors, medical devices and instrumentation, medical imaging, sensors, safety and compliance in healthcare, as well as such important skills as project management and team building. This program provides the student with knowledge and skills to function as medical instrumentation technologist/engineer. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of human anatomy, sensing and monitoring principles, and instrumentation and device operation. Graduates of this degree program will find opportunities in manufacturing, hospitals, laboratories, government, and many other industrial sectors. This program will prepare students for the entry level jobs as: test engineer, field engineer, production engineer, design engineer, quality engineer, sales engineer.
