About Cardiovascular Technology (A.S.)

The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Cardiovascular Technology degree program provides students with an organized curriculum that includes required general education classes and required core professional classes for the invasive and noninvasive cardiovascular curriculum.

In noninvasive cardiology, their role is to perform and assist in noninvasive cardiac procedures such as echocardiograms, exercise treadmill testing, stress echocardiograms and other diagnostic cardiac examinations.
