Technology is a critical part of today’s healthcare environment, and the people who maintain it play an important role. With this degree, you’ll bridge the distance between technology and patient care by working with medical personnel to ensure the proper, safe, and optimal use of electronic devices. You’ll apply your knowledge in equipment mechanics, hydraulics, pneumatics, and networking to medical equipment including nerve stimulators, monitors, and infusion pumps, imaging systems, dialysis units, and heart-lung bypass machines.
If you have an interest in the medical field, this program can open the door to many career options. You may find yourself working in an operating room, a renal dialysis center, sleep lab, or an oncology department. Site-based learning is emphasized with clinical study and internships. The medical field is particularly rewarding if you want to use your skill in technology to help others.
