York College will partner with the University of North Dakota (UND), among other possible institutions in the future, to offer a dual degree program in engineering that will allow students to complete both degrees from the York campus. While an Engineering major isn’t new to York College’s campus, what is new is the educational format.

"This agreement will provide a pathway for our students to receive training in the engineering field, opening up a wider range of professional career choices for them," YC Provost Shane Mountjoy said. "Our pre-engineering students have continually expressed a desire to stay engaged on our campus, and we are excited that this partnership will allow them to remain in York while they complete their studies."
