Like many industries, healthcare continues to get more advanced as smart technologies continue to make their way into the beds and operating rooms of the hospitals and clinics in Northeast Wisconsin. As these life-saving tools get more advanced, the need for competent technicians to build, maintain, and troubleshoot the tools increases. Projections show more than 1,400 annual job openings for biomedical engineers and technicians through 2030. As nursing shortages continue to plague the state, there has never been a higher demand for biomedical technicians to ensure that equipment is functioning properly.   


NWTC’s Biomedical Electronics program gives students options after graduation - from product testing and design to field service or sales. These behind-the-scenes jobs are crucial components of comprehensive patient care in increasingly high-tech health systems.
