“When somebody in the world says diesel, the next word out of their mouth is Wahpeton.”
Terry Marohl, Diesel Technology Program Chair

Welcome to a Higher Standard of Higher Education

Wahpeton is the proud home of one of the nation’s oldest public, two-year colleges. North Dakota State College of Science adds enormous value to the community. Not only does the school draw students from around the country with unique programs and athletic opportunities, but its technical degrees further the industries Wahpeton thrives on. Fields of the FutureGreen technology continues to appear in national headlines. NDSCS addresses the issues locally, filling need for cleaner, more efficient industries with education for tomorrow. From the field to the factory, NDSCS applies a green ideology to several of its degree programs such as:

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive Technology
  • Biofuels
  • Biotechnology
  • Building Construction
  • Civil Engineering
  • Construction Technology
  • Diesel Mechanics
  • Microelectronics
  • Nanoscience
  • And more

Online and On CampusFlexibility remains at the forefront of education in Wahpeton’s public schools and at the college level. NDSCS offers several online associate degrees, but what makes NDSCS truly amazing is its on-campus living. Most two-year schools fail to provide students the full post-secondary experience. By adding student housing options, NDSCS enriches the community through the diversity of ideas, backgrounds and experiences of its students. This eclectic mix of individuals leads to progress and innovation.Campus LifeNDSCS excels in Athletics, developing All-Americans in a variety of sports including football, basketball and volleyball. The arts are also central to the school with many enrolling in choir and band. In addition to sports, NDSCS students actively participate in over 30 student organizations. Looking at the vibrant campus, it’s hard to imagine NDSCS is only a two year school.
