Engineering Technology

Electronics Engineering Technology Biomedical
CURRICULUM General education consisting of Communication Skills (oral and written), Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Electrotechnology, Engineering Graphics, Technology Awareness and Student Success. Specific education in the theory and application of analog and digital electronics with a specialized emphasis on Biomedical instruments, equipment and techniques. Practical education in a Health Care environment through curriculum integrated labs and the biomedical practicum. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES The graduates of this program may enter the work force in the employment of hospital biomedical engineering departments, with manufacturers and distributors of biomedical instrumentation, as well as independent sales and service organizations. Employment may include design and development of medical instrumentation, as well as purchase evaluation, acceptance testing, preventive and demand maintenance and operator training. Graduates with two years of appropriate work experience may receive the designation of Professional Technologist (P. Tech).

The Electronics Engineering Technology (Biomedical) Program is an option available in the three-year Electronics Engineering Technology Program. The program is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge and ability to ensure medical electronic equipment is performing safely and effectively. The program includes a seven week practicum where the students will work in hospital-based biomedical departments or medical equipment sales and service companies. Memberships in the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES) as well as the Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Newfoundland (AETTN) are encouraged. Education and training is provided in the areas of biomedical instrumentation, microprocessor applications in the health care setting, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, health care and safety. ACCREDITATION This program is accredited by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board under the mandate of the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists. The academic credentials of graduates of accredited technology programs are recognized internationally by the signatories of the Sydney Accord. Note: This program may not be suitable for applicants who do not have normal colour perception. OBJECTIVES 1. To emphasize an awareness of and concern for patient safety in the health care environment. 2. To provide an engineering systems approach to problem solving with respect to the hospital environment, so that graduates can readily upgrade their knowledge and skills. 3. To develop proficiency in the safe use of specialized test instrumentation and troubleshooting techniques associated with electro-medical equipment. 4. To familiarize the student with a wide range of electro-medical devices including patient care monitoring systems, defibrillators, electrosurgery units, diagnostic medical imaging systems, clinical laboratory instrumentation, and numerous other diagnostic, therapeutic and patient care instruments.

Semester 9 (Technical Intersession III) Cr Le La WT1700 Biomedical Practicum P/F Note: The final semester of year 3 is a 7 week work term. While the requirements for all Health Boards is not the same, it is standard practice for any government position to provide a letter of conduct from local law enforcement (typically RNC or RCMP). Due to the nature of any work in Health care and its’ inherent risk, it is also required that health vaccination records be updated and any outstanding vaccinations be received prior to commencement of the practicum. As well any allergies or sensitivities should be identified at this time. These requirements are initiated and completed during semester 8. (Winter semester, year 3) This program is currently under review and is subject to change.
