Thanks to a historic gift from Richard and Linda Offerdahl, NDSU’s College of Engineering is not just building for today — it’s transforming for the future.

The new Richard Offerdahl '65 Engineering Complex will be built in the heart of campus and is designed with innovation at the forefront. It will propel the College of Engineering into the future and elevate the student experience by providing state-of-the-art spaces that emphasize teamwork, communication, and interdisciplinary learning.

“NDSU engineers are doing work that changes the world. This new, visionary facility will be a showcase for the University, highlighting the amazing work happening within the College and putting engineering on display,” Alan Kallmeyer, interim dean of the College of Engineering, said.
