Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering Technology
Bioengineering and biomedical engineering technologists focus on biomedical equipment.  They may work on designs or applications, or may be responsible for installation planning, operation, or maintenance for biomedical equipment.  Bioengineering technologists may also work on the development or implementation of biomedical systems. They generally work in hospitals or independent medical service organizations, and may inspect, calibrate, or manage equipment found in the facility they work in.

Preparation
Those interested in a career in bioengineering and biomedical engineering technology should consider reviewing engineering technology programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. However, there are many ET programs not yet accredited by ABET, so check with your local community college or university for more information. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited. Students take courses such as biomedical instrumentation and systems, medical and clinical equipment, and physiological transducers. Laboratory work is also likely. The following is a current list of all universities offering accredited degree programs in bioengineering and biomedical engineering technology
