Build the foundational math and science skills that will help you prepare for a successful career in one of the many specialties in the exciting and expanding field of engineering.
M State's 60-credit Engineering AS degree, offered on our Moorhead campus, is designed for students who intend to continue their education and earn a bachelor's degree in engineering at a four-year college or university. Our partnership with North Dakota State University allows graduates to transfer into any of NDSU's eight engineering programs, and earning an AS degree at M State means you will have completed the general education courses required by NDSU.
The curriculum for our Engineering degree includes courses in engineering, math, chemistry, physics and general education. Our higher-level math and science classes average 15-25 students and are taught by instructors with master's degrees, so you benefit from the individualized attention of your instructors.
This program is eligible for the Minnesota Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program. Participating students will have their tuition and fees paid after Federal Pell and Minnesota State grants have been applied to their accounts.
There is no separate application for this grant. Interested students apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or, for undocumented students, the Minnesota Dream Act Application. Funding is limited, so submit the FAFSA as early as possible since applicants will be ranked by their application date.

Engineering Associate of Science (AS)
The Associate of Science in Engineering consists of the sequential math, physics and other science courses which will transfer to either a BS in physics or to diverse engineering programs at many four-year colleges and universities. An AS in Engineering will also open an option for technical jobs in the upcoming new energy sector. In general, a degree in engineering has been and will continue to be an excellent platform for success across a wide range of careers in the private sector, government, schools, colleges and universities.
M State's Engineering program has articulation agreements with North Dakota State University and St. Cloud State University. Graduates from M State's program can transfer into NDSU's bachelor degree programs in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Construction Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and SCSU's bachelor program in Eletrical Engineering.
Articulation agreements ensure that students completing specified coursework or degree programs at M State will transfer into designated programs at partner universities/colleges per the terms of the agreement. This cooperative effort eliminates or minimizes the questions and confusion that sometimes accompany transfer and allows our students to be confident that their degree from M State will satisfy a substantive portion of the completion requirements for the bachelor's degree at the university/college they will be attending.
