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). Completion of this certificate requires specific instruction in quality engineering and regulation of medical technologies; moreover, candidates must go beyond understanding concepts and demonstrate appropriate usage of quality engineering principles in a medically related internship. Given the challenging demands for both better outcomes and lower costs in medical care, candidates for this certificate are expected to be entering a high-growth job market for engineers.
