Helping the medical team diagnose and treat patients.


The Radiography Program equips students with educational experiences within classroom and clinical settings and prepares them for a rewarding career in medical imaging.

Radiographers play a key role in the medical team, providing diagnostic radiology services in hospitals, clinics, and advanced medical imaging centers. Administering ionizing radiation, the radiographer produces images of any designated body part, including bones, joints, and internal organs. The radiographer instructs and positions patients, manipulates x-ray equipment, selects appropriate exposure factors, provides radiation protection, processes images and evaluates image quality.

No waiting list, first-class program

Unlike many programs in the region, the Radiography Program at Southeast Technical does not have a waiting list and is ready to welcome you to the program now.

At Southeast Technical in Winona, radiography students can look forward to one-on-one attention from our expert, experienced faculty. Our newly renovated facilities include a state-of-the-art energized x-ray laboratory with computed radiography and direct digital technology. You will be well trained in all aspects of the technology and patient care.

This is a challenging, academically rigorous program for high achieving, motivated students who demonstrate a strong aptitude for math and science. Because of high application numbers, students with an above-average profile will have a competitive advantage in the admissions process.

The curriculum is strenuous as students earn an Associate of Science (A.A.S.) degree in only 5 semesters, which alternate between coursework and labs on campus and clinical assignments off campus. Students will be expected to handle stressful situations and make multiple decisions regarding patient care during clinical course work.

Program graduates will be eligible to take the national certification examination in Radiography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. They may seek employment as an entry-level radiographer or continue their education in an advanced field of study.

The employment outlook in medical imaging is excellent. In 2014, US News and World Report ranked radiologic technologist among the top 100 jobs, noting that the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts employment growth of about 21 percent between 2012 and 2022.


The Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical Radiography program's mission is to educate students to become competent, entry-level radiographers who provide quality patient care in an evolving healthcare environment.
