    Employment Outcomes

    The employment opportunities for Diploma graduates will be working as a technical officer in the rapidly-growing electronics industry and related areas like defence, mining, biomedical and communications. You may be commissioning and maintaining medical equipment or supervising production line activities in a manufacturing environment. Biomedical Engineering combines a knowledge of electronics with medicine and health industry practices. The Associate Degree in Biomedical Engineering was developed in collaboration with SA Health and Biomedical Engineering (SABME), the main provider of biomedical engineering services for the State Government. The employment opportunities for the graduates of this course are in companies who offer biomedical engineering services to the Australian health institutions. Working as a biomedical paraprofessional you will be installing, commissioning, testing and fault-finding biomedical equipment used in the Health system. You will also find employment opportunities in electronics and related-industries. Graduates often choose to further their career by completing a University degree.

    Note: Completion of a TAFE SA course does not guarantee an employment outcome. Formal requirements other than educational qualifications (eg licensing, professional registration), may apply to some occupations.
