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.


The Medical Device Industry and Minnesota

Do you wonder what qualifies a product as a class I, II or III medical device? Do you want to know the size of the medical device industry and what the future looks like for the industry in Minnesota? Want to know how a medical device goes from an idea to market release? What learn more about the current and future workforce needs? 

To get these answers, watch the video and enroll in BMED 1100 “Introduction to Biomedical Devices and Industry.”  These 2 credit, 8 week class, will walk students through a different career path each week.  This is a great course to help students understand what specialty might interest them in the medical device industry.


Program leads to great careers in Sales & Marketing, clinical research, Research & Development, Manufacturing, Product Building, Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs, Technical Writing or as a Biomedical Equipment Technician.
