About our Biomedical Equipment Technology Degree

The Biomedical Equipment Technology (BMET) program prepares students for entry-level employment within the field of healthcare technology management. Students learn the specialized skills necessary to install, inspect, maintain, repair, calibrate, modify, and design biomedical equipment and support systems to adhere to medical standards and guidelines. The BMET program provides students with the proper knowledge and skill levels to earn employment as a biomedical equipment technician, biomedical equipment support specialist, biomedical engineering specialist, medical systems technician, field service engineers, or other entry-level role related to the biomedical equipment maintenance field. While in school, students learn the fundamentals of medical equipment maintenance, medical and electronic terminology, safety codes and regulations, and basic instrumentation device theory and operation. Their education will be rounded out with general education courses in communication, mathematics, psychology, ethics, and physics. This balanced learning approach provides the student with an appropriate skill set to help cultivate future biomedical equipment technicians.

The healthcare technology management department, as well as other third-party independent service organizations, desire both the skills of our graduates and the professional skills, attention to detail, commitment to safety, ability to follow procedures and document processes, and interpersonal soft skills that we teach within the program. The program concludes with an externship course, which focuses on hands-on application of the knowledge and skills acquired for maintaining a healthcare facility’s patient care and medical staff equipment.
