Biomedical Pathways

Biomedical Technology - BMED




What is Biomedical Technology?

The Biomedical Technology Program at Anoka-Ramsey prepares students to design, manufacture or repair equipment that diagnoses or provides therapeutic relief to medical problems. Simply put, products can be anything from bandages to pacemakers; from medical device components to the final medical device product.

The medical device industry is critically dependent on employees with great skills and up-to-date training on the full spectrum of design, regulatory, manufacturing and quality issues.

By working with faculty and advisors directly from the industry, we assure our students receive the most current, best practices available to make them highly valuable to themselves and their employers.


Prepare for Careers In:

Sales/Marketing, Clinical Research, R&D, Manufacturing, Quality, Regulatory, Technical Writing and Equipment Repair.

Skills Transfer to Other Industries:

The focus of the program is in the area of medical device, but the skills learned are transferable to other industries such as pharmaceutical, automotive and aerospace.

Anoka-Ramsey is a partner college with 360.
