This paper describes in detail ******Biomedical Engineering Technology (BET) concentration within the context of an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology (ET), including capstone experience on various biomedical technology topics and the specifics of one core BET course. The BET concentration is one of four concentrations available through ****** ET program that is offered by the ET Department in the College of Engineering. The other three concentrations are Electrical Engineering Technology (EET), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), and Industrial Engineering Technology (IET). The BET concentration has a focus on the practice of medical equipment operation and support in the clinical environment and therefore helps reduce the gap between demand and supply of qualified biomedical engineering technologists. Its development was based on our experience, the program objectives, recommendations made by members of the ET Industrial Advisory Committee, consultations with the faculty and administrators of ****** Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, and support by the College of Medicine and the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
