Biomedical Engineering Technology Degree Program
Help advance the technology needed to enhance today's healthcare technology by earning a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering Technology (BMET) from DeVry University. Combining traditional engineering expertise with an understanding of biological processes, Biomedical Engineering Technology 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 can play essential roles on the biomedical team, typically designing and implementing hardware and software solutions to complex biological or medical problems.
With a Biomedical Engineering Technology degree from DeVry University, you'll be equipped to use cutting-edge engineering principles to analyze and facilitate the biological and medical technology innovations needed to solve these problems, and ultimately, improve the healthcare technology system.
Focusing on applying concepts and skills to real-world situations, DeVry's BMET curriculum may include these courses:
After exploring analog signal processing (ASP) and digital signal processing (DSP), students in this lab course will program ASP and DSP chips for applications in communications, control systems, digital audio processing, and digital image processing.
Introducing microprocessor interfacing to peripheral devices, this course covers basic input/output operations and specific peripheral devices, including A/Ds, D/As, keyboards, displays, and serial and parallel communication channels. Software (high-level and assembly) and hardware aspects of these devices are developed.
