Healthcare Engineering Technology Concentration

Effective March 15, 2020, new students are no longer being accepted into this concentration, however similar options are available. Contact Gerry Willis at or 215-895-6253 for additional information.

The Healthcare Engineering Technology concentration focuses on the practice of medical equipment operation and support in the clinical environment. This concentration provides students with the knowledge they need to work in the medical field, operating complicated diagnostic and patient care equipment. 

During the first three years, students of all concentrations in Engineering Technology take electrical, mechanical, and industrial courses to get a solid, systematic background in different engineering fields. Students are required to complete general and concentration engineering technology courses, technical electives, and free elective courses that permit students great latitude in tailoring the program of study to match their career goals.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
