Health IT Technician


Engineering Technicians intervene in the feasibility studies, trials and maintenance of software solutions in the medical and biotechnological fields; they guarantee the correct management of information systems, the integration of biomedical informatics systems (medical records, PACS, RIS, LIS, etc.) and the administration of complex network infrastructures in public and private, national and international companies in the New Life Technologies sector. In line with the “Industry 4.0” strategies, the course includes lessons on the realization of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) systems and 3D modeling for the biomedical sector, and favours knowledge extraction through the support and development of IoHT platforms.

Engineering Technicians value and support good hospital practices, more and more linked to a constant technological evolution, and are highly qualified to work in companies, hospitals and research centres in the biomedical informatics and biotechnologies fields.

“The biomedical and BioICT sectors are in constant evolution: our companies need qualified and up-to-date young technicians, already integrated in the professional fields in which they will operate. ITS A. Volta respond effectively to our professional needs”
Barbara Dodi

“Today’s world has no borders: the Health IT course is a highly-technical specialization path that allowed me to intern at an important company, and my degree to be recognized in Europe. In addition, ITS A. Volta job placement services provide valuable help to find a job in line with our personal and professional aspirations. And it really worked for me: a few days after the final exam I had already started my new job! Thank you ITS!”

From the entrance test to the project work discussion, find out how the course is articulated

Candidates take an entrance test to assess their level on the technical skills required by the course and their knowledge of English and informatics (a written test followed by an interview)

Classroom training, laboratories, visits to companies. More than 50% of the teachers come from companies and have at least 5 years of specific experience

Carried out at relevant businesses in the biomedical sector, in Italy or abroad. Every student is supervised by a company tutor

It consists of a theoretical/practical examination, an oral and a written test, in which students present the project work they developed during their internship
