The NDSU College of Engineering and Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, have partnered to provide a new pathway for students interested in earning an NDSU engineering degree.
The NDSU College of Engineering has entered into an agreement with Concordia College to provide a new engineering degree opportunity for area students.
“This partnership is a win for our entire region,” said Alan Kallmeyer, interim dean of the NDSU College of Engineering. “By providing a new pathway for students interested in earning an NDSU engineering degree, we can graduate more field-ready engineers who are ready to meet a critical workforce need.”
Under the newly established agreement, students will spend three years at Concordia before transferring to NDSU to finish an engineering degree of their choice. Upon successful completion, they will graduate with both a Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia with a major in applied science and a Bachelor of Science from one of NDSU’s engineering programs.
“With a commitment to career readiness and the regional community, we are so pleased to work with a local partner,” says Susan Larson, dean and provost of Concordia College. “Students interested in a liberal arts education can achieve their engineering goals without having to relocate, helping ensure talent stays here.”
The program will be managed by Concordia’s physics department, which will work with NDSU to advise students planning to complete the new dual-degree program.
“This coming together of two great institutions is all about serving students in our area and giving them the skills to make a difference in the world,” said David Bertolini, NDSU provost.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
