Engineering Department

Students interested in an engineering degree gain a valuable head start at Anoka-Ramsey. Small class sizes allow Engineering Department faculty to give each student the individual attention they need to successfully complete the first half of coursework toward a bachelor's degree in engineering. After learning fundamental engineering concepts, students gain hands-on experience in engineering design using advanced engineering software and circuit trainers in our electrical engineering lab. 

 

Who We Are

Engineering Department faculty are experienced teachers and engineering practitioners in their own right. Faculty members bring a wealth of industry experience in a wide range of engineering disciplines.

More About The Department

The Engineering Department at Anoka-Ramsey strives to prepare students for a career in the engineering profession.  The curriculum designed for transfer to a four-year university in order to obtain a bachelor's Degree in Engineering. The college is a teaching institution dedicated solely to educating its students. Students can expect to be enrolled in courses with smaller class sizes than what would typically be seen at four-year institutions. This provides for excellent student/instructor interaction, and allows the instructor to accurately assess a student’s performance on a regular basis.

      The movie Hidden Figures that features the true story of a team of African-American female mathematicians who served a vital role in the early days of the NASA space program points out a lingering issue—the lack of representation of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. While women in STEM have come a long way, we are hardly at the finish line. Women in engineering, physics and computer science are particularly less represented in proportion to their numbers than in the other STEM fields.
