The four-year degree program, offered on-campus and online, is the only one of its kind in the Dakotas, Montana and Idaho — in other words, between Minneapolis and Seattle. College officials are looking forward to offering an experience that’s hands-on, collaborative and in-demand in the region.
“We’re very excited about this collaborative project between the College of Engineering & Mines and the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences,” said Brian Tande, dean of the College of Engineering and Mines. “This project will build upon a long history of space-related research at UND and further grow our capabilities to develop new technologies for space applications. It will also capitalize on the generous investment the North Dakota Legislature has recently provided for space research at UND and will certainly lead to even more opportunities.”
