Biomedical Engineering Technology Program

Welcome to the Biomedical Engineering Technology Research Guide

This guide will provide links to resources of interest to students and faculty in the Biomedial Engineering Technology Program. 

Definition

The Biomedical Engineering Technology (BMET) program is applications-oriented in the areas of physiological bioinstrumentation and informatics, providing knowledge and skills graduates need to function effectively in multidisciplinary teams, adapt to changes in technical environments throughout their careers and progress in their professional responsibilities.

Combining traditional engineering expertise with an understanding of biological processes, BMET BS degree holders work with physicians, therapists and other technicians in the design, construction, implementation and maintenance of sophisticated healthcare equipment and lifesaving devices.  BMET graduates serve essentials roles on the biomedical team, typically designing and implementing hardware and software solutions to complex biological or medical problems.
