Biomedical Engineering

Associate in Science 

The rapid development of biomedical equipment technology, combined with the introduction of increasingly complex and vital biomedical equipment, has created a serious need for well-prepared technicians in hospitals and medical research centers. These technicians must understand this new technology and be capable of maintaining, calibrating, modifying, and adapting this equipment. Gateway’s Biomedical Engineering Technology associate degree program will qualify students for these demanding careers. 

Program Outcomes
Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates should be able to: 

  • Show mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of biomedical engineering technology 
  • Apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications in mathematics, science, engineering, and technology 
  • Conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes 
  • Apply creativity in the design of systems, components, and processes appropriate to program objectives 
  • Function effectively as part of a team 
  • Identify, analyze, and solve technical problems 
  • Communicate effectively 
  • Recognize the need for and posses the ability to pursue lifelong learning 
  • Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities 
  • Be cognizant of contemporary professional, societal, and global issues, and be aware of and respect diverse cultures 
  • Show a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement 

Growth in the biotechnology industry offers graduates of this program new opportunities as instrumentation calibration technicians for production, validation, and research equipment and instrumentation. Equipment manufacturers require the services of biomedical engineering technicians to assist in developing, manufacturing, testing, service, and technical sales of biomedical equipment. Graduates of Gateway’s program are also capable of dealing with most types of non-medical electronics.
