Prepare for an engineering career in manufacturing, research and development, telecommunications, and more. Learn about engineering design and creative problem solving, while gaining practical experience through experiential learning.
What You’ll Learn
You’ll explore the application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism in our new machine shop, student design center, and electrical engineering labs. Because you’ll work alongside students studying different engineering areas — just as you will in your professional career — you’ll gain the teamwork and communication skills you’ll need to succeed.
- Learn by real-life examples.
You’ll learn through a combination of lab work, design projects, and data-driven problem solving. Our faculty include as many practical examples as possible throughout the program, so you’ll be prepared for what happens in the real world.
- Make valuable connections.
You’ll gain skills and make lasting professional contacts as you intern with companies, agencies, and organizations in Bismarck or around the region. The School of Engineering has relationships with over 50 companies, many of which offer paid internship opportunities.
- Create a plan of study that works for you.
Because of our flexibility and the personal attention we give our students, you’ll pursue an academic plan that fits with your overall objectives and interests — from playing NCAA sports to studying abroad.

I am a person who sees the beauty of God's creation and magnificent order in all places, especially in engineering, where order is key. All the formulas that we use in our field are set by our loving Creator and being on a journey where you learn and teach these orderly formulas and equations gives immense joy. I love my students and I try my best to let them see the beauty in what they learn so they get excited and energized, and see that engineering can become a vocation, not just a career.
