Biomedical equipment technology is evolving very rapidly. As a consequence, increasingly complex and essential biomedical equipment is entering patient care and biomedical research centres. This in turn creates a niche for specialized people who understand the emerging technology and possess the essential skills for maintaining, calibrating and customizing this equipment. This course will provide students with the knowledge that is essential for performing the duties of a Biomedical Engineering Technologist. The student will understand the latest developments and basic engineering principles of biomedical devices from their physiological basis to diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
