The Specialist Diploma in Medical Technology and Informatics will raise your competency to meet the digital transformation of the Industry and to meet the demands for trained specialists in Medical Technology (MedTech), Biomedical and Healthcare sectors. You will acquire highly relevant skill-sets to perform maintenance and troubleshooting of biomedical equipment and devices, using data analytics to develop solutions for problems related to medical technology and biomedical engineering and using operational technology security software, IoT & network to mitigate cybersecurity issues for manufacturing of medical devices and healthcare operations management within the industry.
This course is relevant for adult learners looking to upgrade their skills and knowledge in Medical Technology Informatics, Data Analytics and Cybersecurity. The knowledge and skills gained through this course would enable individuals to expand their job scope and take on new roles or tasks at their workplace, particularly in the medical technology, biomedical industry and healthcare sectors.
Upon completion of the programme, graduates will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding in the concepts and technologies involved in data analytics and data lifecycle, gathering, cleaning, processing and visualising data.
- Apply data analysis methods, descriptive and predictive analytics as well as machine learning applications.
- Apply operational technology security software, IoT & network to mitigate cybersecurity issues in the workplace.
- Assess and troubleshoot Biomedical Instrumentation and Systems
- Demonstrate an understanding of the advanced technologies used in Medical Devices
Applicants should possess at least a Polytechnic Diploma, or an ITE Technical Diploma/Technical Engineer Diploma/Work-Learn Technical Diploma or equivalent.
Applicants who do not meet the entry requirements may be considered for admission to the course based on evidence of at least 5 years of relevant working experience or supporting evidence of competency readiness. Suitable applicants who are shortlisted may have to go through an interview and/or entrance test. The Polytechnic reserves the right to shortlist and admit applicants.
- Individuals who are keen to embark on a career in the Medical Technology, Biomedical, Healthcare Industries
- Working adults who wish to upgrade their skills and knowledge to support the growing needs of the Medical Technology, Biomedical Engineering, Healthcare and Biomedical Industries.
To be awarded the Specialist Diploma, participants are required to complete a total of 2 Post-Diploma Certificates (PDCs). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of each PDC.
Post Diploma Certificate in Smart Technology
This certificate provides knowledge and skills in the data analytics and operational technology security which includes gathering, cleaning, processing, visualising data, data analysis methods, descriptive and predictive analytics, machine learning applications and cybersecurity risks, mitigation methods and various OT cybersecurity standards are covered to meet the industry needs and for governance and compliances.
|CII1C01||Data Analytics Essentials
