UND may partner with Williston State on oil degreeGRAND FORKS - A branch of the University of North Dakota’s petroleum engineering program may go west as part of an effort to expand the university’s presence across North Dakota.
President Robert Kelley said during his annual State of the University address Tuesday that the College of Engineering and Mines is proposing to offer a bachelor’s degree in the west with help from Williston State College.
He said he expects to seek funding for the program from the Legislature. “I hope you stay tuned as we develop more and more pieces of that.”
