There is no single engineering program that is best for everyone but we believe our department has traits that make us stand out as one of the best:
- A reputation for teaching great engineers
- Small student to faculty ratio
- Above average scores on national tests
- Good value (quality of education/cost)
- High standards of admission
Computer engineering deals with both hardware and software aspects of computer systems. Students take essential electrical engineering classes along with specialized classes in computer engineering and computer science. Learn more.
Electrical engineers create products and services for society out of materials that exist in nature using principles of science and common sense. You’ll design, develop and test everything from cell phones, tablets and computers to biomedical devices and robotics. Learn more.
The engineering complex contains state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment and helps us provide hands-on learning solving real-world problems. Numerous grants and donations from the National Science Foundation and private industry have provided valuable tools supporting our mission of education and research.
Find Your Path
We offer several areas of specialization that allow you to pursue your specific interests. Our students are encouraged to develop and individual program of study in close consultation with their advisers and may mix and match from several technical areas.
Get a Job
Our graduates are working all over the world in a variety of exciting jobs at excellent salaries. An engineering education also provides excellent training for fields other than engineering such as business, medicine or law. Since engineers are problem solvers, there is a constant demand for engineers to solve problems outside typical engineering fields.
We offer affordable access to an excellent education at a top-ranked research university. You will have access to modern laboratories and equipment, learn to use engineering software used by companies around the world and be taught by faculty who are leaders in their field.
- The college awarded student scholarships totaling more than $300,000 in 2018.
- Minnesota students are eligible for tuition reciprocity.
- NDSU offers guaranteed awards to incoming freshman who meet certain criteria.
Earn While You Learn
The Cooperative Education Program allows students to alternate classroom study with a series of paid professional work experiences related to electrical and computer engineering. These experiences increase in complexity as the student's background increases.
The program provides opportunity for:
- Pre-graduation experience in the profession
- Exploration of several career opportunities
- Money for education
- An enriched degree
- Enhanced opportunities for employment following graduation.
