Biomedical Equipment Technology
Hospitals and medical centers stay active around the clock, and medical personnel rely on advanced biomedical equipment to make the difference when life is literally hanging in the balance. They demand that the equipment they use be repaired quickly and maintained in first-class condition to avoid malfunctions that might slow down or stop medical procedures. The up-keep and repair of this equipment requires highly skilled technicians, professionals dedicated to precise work-professionals like the graduates of the Biomedical Equipment Technology (BET) program at Texas State Technical College. TSTC's program can show you the way to an exciting and challenging career as a biomedical equipment technician. This is a career with a future. The aging population will increase the need for medical care and the demand for these technicians.
