The Associate in Engineering Technology with a specialization in Medical Technology and Healthcare Systems features a strong Tech Core, preparing you to utilize advanced tools to solve pressing problems through the design and development of cutting-edge medical devices and equipment.
With a Medical Technology and Healthcare Systems specialization, you can consider careers including, but not limited to:
- Electrical Engineering Technician
In this role, you’ll assist an electrical engineer with designing, developing and testing electrical equipment and control systems. Your job may be more theoretical or more practical, depending on the specific position.
- Computer User Support Specialist
Sometimes referred to as a help-desk technician, this position focuses on assisting computer users with any issues that arise. You might work in a corporate office assisting team members throughout a hospital system, or you might help home users across the country with logging into their telemedicine appointments. Most of this work is remote, providing assistance by phone, email or chat, but you might be required to make occasional site visits as well.
- Field Service Technician
Unlike computer user support specialists, field service technicians spend most of their time on the road. You’ll be responsible for installing, maintaining and repairing equipment, such as ICU medical devices or hospital telecommunications hardware.
- Engineering Technologist (General)
As a general engineering technologist, you’ll be able to solve numerous challenges across many different areas of engineering. Working under a specialized engineer, you might assist with technical operations, product design or field engineering throughout the healthcare industry.
