Helping Hospitals Function

biomedical engineering students

A patient lies on a hospital bed after a heart attack, waiting for hospital personnel to administer a defibrillator. What if the defibrillator doesn’t work?

A biomedical technician makes sure they do. As a valued member of any hospital or heath care organization, biomedical technicians make sure medical technology is properly maintained and repaired to ensure every patient receives the best treatment possible. Doctors and nurses aren’t the only hospital personnel who help save people’s lives.

As biomedical engineering technicians, you will use a variety of technical, problem-solving and communication skills while playing a critical and life-saving role in a health care organization.

Degrees and Certificates

Students can complete the EET AAS degree and/or the the following EET option:

  • Associate of Applied Science in EET: Biomedical Engineering Technology

The Biomedical Engineering Technology is an option of Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) program, giving students a more specialized track to a career in biomedical engineering technology.

See the Catalog, the program overview for more information, including program prerequisites.

Transferable Credits

Full transferability of the EET program and all its options into the BSEET of Oregon Institute of Technology. Here you have the 2007-08 articulation agreement between OIT and PCC.

EET courses transfer to other BS programs. Please check with an EET advisor for details.

Within a History of Excellence

The Biomedical Engineering Technology option is unique area within PCC’s historically strong Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) program. Offered at the Sylvania Campus, the Biomedical Engineering Technology option trains students to excel as biomedical electronics technicians through a variety of learning activities in and out of the classroom.

For more than 40 years, our EET program has produced graduates whose superior skills and abilities have helped them obtain excellent jobs and pursue advanced degrees. The difference between the Biomedical Engineering Technology option and EET program is small – more than two-thirds of the classes overlap – so you can easily get training in both areas and make yourself more marketable.

What's Next?

  1. Attend an advising session (days and times listed on main Electronic Engineering Technology page).
  2. Apply for admission to the EET program and its Biomedical Engineering Technology option. Biomedical Engineering Technology is a limited enrollment program for students seeking a degree. Qualified students are accepted in the order in which the application process is completed.
    • Note: Prospective students planning to take evening classes please be advised that the co-op course (EET 280C -BMET Practicum) is not offered during the evening.
