Biomedical device engineering
Similar to Biomedical technology but with an emphasis on engineering, this 2-year degree prepares students for a career in the growing field of medical devices. Medical devices include everything from MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and X-ray machines to novel adhesives for surgery and bandages.
Associate degrees from Bio-Link programs emphasize practical, “hands-on” learning, and familiarity with cutting edge techniques, technologies, and equipment. With this degree, students gain a working knowledge of design, manufacture, repair and maintenance of medical devices.
In addition to design/ manufacturing of medical devices, other courses include technical writing, quality assurance, engineering graphics, digital electronics, instrumentation and control, and electromechanical devices . Foundational courses in English, and a variety of math and science disciplines including biology, chemistry, physics and computer science are included.
This degree can be used for entry level positions in the design, manufacturing, repair/maintenance, or sales of medical devices.
