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.
