The biomedical engineering technology programs prepare students to work on sophisticated diagnostic equipment and medical devices in a healthcare setting. Schoolcraft offers two educational options and additional experience opportunities in this exciting field:
- An associate in applied science degree teaches students to maintain and repair medical electronic equipment in hospitals, labs and industries engaged in the manufacture and sale of these products.
- The biomedical applications post-associate certificate is for individuals already working in the field that want to advance their career opportunities by providing additional knowledge and skills needed to meet the demands of the rapidly changing biomedical field.
A state-of-the-art lab enables students to gain first-hand knowledge of troubleshooting equipment and design prototypes. In addition, a two-semester long internship provides additional hands-on field training in one of the area’s hospitals. Students must complete internships to be eligible to fulfill program requirements.
