About MS-MTQ

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the St. Cloud State University’s Master of Science in Medical Technology Quality (MS-MTQ). The program is starting fall semester 2012. Enroll soon to ensure yourself a position in the first cohort.

This program addresses one of the key professions for the medtech industry, helping current Quality professionals broaden and deepen their expertise in a wide range of Quality fields.

The program was developed by the 11 member Quality Education Committee that was made up of senior Quality leaders from a number of medtech companies including the four largest in Minnesota in addition to a professor leading the University’s Master of Engineering Management. The companies represented on this committee included over 2/3 of the medtech industry in Minnesota. This committee worked closely together to develop this powerful curriculum.

The program focuses on the fundamentals of Quality for the medtech industry, the medtech Regulatory impact, Quality Systems development and implementation, design and manufacturing process development and validation, and the overall management of Quality for the medtech industry. It also provides experience and development competencies in:
