AAS DEGREE IN BIOMEDICAL EQUIPMENT TECHNOLOGY
The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Biomedical Equipment Technology-IDL is an interactive distance learning (online) program that provides a realistic and up-to-date overview of the ever-changing career of Healthcare Technology Management. The program is designed to prepare the student to seek a variety of entry-level positions in the field, as well as advancing in a current BMET career.
The online program gives the student flexibility to complete a program of study when the traditional classroom setting is not an option. Biomedical Equipment Technicians apply basic engineering principles and technical skills necessary to properly maintain diagnostic, treatment and life support equipment in the health and medical fields. Students undergo training in electronics and computer technology, with a special emphasis on medical applications, operations and procedures. This program includes instruction in instrument calibration, design, installation and testing; and safety, maintenance, and installation procedures. The general education component of the program prepares students to think critically in preparation for taking on leadership positions in the field. The full program takes 60 weeks, about 15 months, to complete. Upon completion of all requirements the student will be awarded an AAS (Associate of Applied Science) degree.
Program Objectives: This program has been designed to offer the student theoretical and practical knowledge required by the healthcare technology management industry. The student will develop with success and will comply with current policies of diagnosis centers, healthcare facilities and modern hospitals. The program promotes an academic, technical and human formation with emphasis in the development of management and leadership skills. Once this program has been completed, the student will be capable of diagnosing failures in medical equipment and will develop repair, calibration, and measuring skills of precision biomedical instruments.
Career Objectives: This program also prepares students to work in positions, such as: Biomedical Equipment Technician (maintenance and repairs), Specialized Equipment Field Service, and Medical Equipment & Instrumentation Technician. Also, Sales, Technical Support, Consulting, and Management.
