NDSU to offer new Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering degree
NDSU will soon be offering a new Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering degree. The new program is set to begin in fall 2020.
The goal of the program is to expand the STEM workforce pool for North Dakota and provide a skillset not available with current engineering degree offerings.
The new degree will provide in-depth technical training to enhance the students’ foundation of mathematics, chemistry and biology, with applications to soil, water, air and environmental health.

NDSU and ND Air National Guard announce partnership for student success
NDSU and the North Dakota Air National Guard have entered into a memorandum of understanding to better serve the research, service, educational and workforce needs of North Dakota. The goal is to provide quicker pathways for military students to earn their degrees by recognizing previously completed course work from a recognized military institution.
NDSU’s Departments of Emergency Management and Criminal Justice/Political Science are the first to agree to waive the college minor requirement for all military students who have completed 15 credits from a recognized military institution. This reduces time to degree achievement for students pursuing these majors.
