What Others Have Said
About UND's Distance Engineering Degree Program
“The main reason [I chose UND] was I could do it at my own pace and I could do it via the Internet so I didn’t have to go campus except for the lab sessions that I have been here for this summer. So the ability to get that first-rate education without having to be on campus in the middle of the day, day after day, no driving, it worked out very well for me, and I’m really pleased to have done it.”
- David French, Boeing
“The distance engineering degree program has offered flexibility allowing minimal interruption with my job.”
- Mitch Stamper, Enterprise Products Operating, L.P.
“The distance engineering degree program is great. It allows me to work full-time and pursue a degree from a reputable college all at the same time.”
- Brandon Tougas, Digi-Key Corporation
“If you’ve been in a position where you would like to excel in a different area…this program allows you to do it while you continue working…and that’s definitely a plus. The teachers were incredibly responsive and helpful, and the blackboard functionality gave the online classes a more real experience. I was promoted within three months of graduation, and have a better defined professional career path since graduation.”
- Dominique Gross, Philips Medical Center
“Coming [to UND] and actually meeting the faculty and putting a face to them and shaking hands…is going to help a lot because now you have more of a rapport with the instructor. I think it’s worthwhile for anyone to do this, I really do."
- Andrew Pillar, Boeing

- Darin Erickson, 3M
“Due to my schedule this is the best option available for an ABET-accredited degree.”

"The distance engineering degree program staff at UND was very accommodating to the distance learner. The quality of the courses and the convenience of distance education in general allowed me to essentially keep the lifestyle that I had grown accustomed to…while opening new opportunities for me professionally and scholastically."
- Jason Chabot, ST-NXP Wireless
"The staff was very helpful. When I had concerns, they would find a solution. When I had questions on homework, I was always able to contact the professor and get help. I really enjoyed coming to campus during the summer. This gave me the opportunity to meet with the professors and meet other students. Overall, I would rate my experience at UND as excellent. Within 5 months, I received a promotion to System Engineer."
- Brian Greff, 3M
