Certificate in Quality Engineering for Regulated Medical Technologies



What will I learn?

Quality engineering principles are mandated by federal and state regulations for clinical facilities and for the design, testing and manufacture of medical technologies (such as pharmaceuticals and imaging, diagnostic and therapeutic devices). Different and complimentary quality regulations apply to both clinical and pre-clinical facilities involved in testing and validating new technologies. Completion of this certificate requires specific instruction in both quality engineering and regulation of medical technologies; moreover, candidates must go beyond understanding concepts by demonstrating appropriate use of quality engineering principles in a medically-related internship. Given the challenge to achieve both improved outcomes and lower costs in medical care, candidates for this certificate are expected to be entering a high-growth job market for biomedical engineers.
