Career Outlook

Biomedical Equipment Technology careerCareer Outlook

Experts predict growth in healthcare-related jobs is about to explode due to the increase in the number of Americans age 65 and older. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) notes that 10 of the 20 fastest-growing occupations are healthcare related, with forecasts of 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs between now and 2020 — more than any other industry.

That’s why there couldn’t be a better time to seek a degree in Biomedical Equipment Technology (BET). The DOL indicates that employers generally prefer candidates with at least an associate degree.

Outlook Highlights:

The medical equipment repair field earned O*Net’s Bright Outlook ranking as an occupation expected to grow rapidly and have excellent job opportunities. In addition, the DOL's Bureau of Labor Statistics cites these numbers for Biomedical Equipment Tehnicians, also called Medical Equipment Repairers:

  • Annual annual wage:  $47,120. (Wages vary by location, employer and experience.)*

  • Mean hourly wage:  $22.65.*

  • Faster than average job growth through 2020, with a projected 31 percent growth rate.*


The DOL information indicates that employers generally prefer candidates with an associate degree in biomedical technology or engineering, which indicates plenty of opportunities for TSTC graduates.

* DOL information as of May 2013.
