This means that our programs are designed to meet the needs of the industry, and our students have the opportunity to work with professionals in their field of study.  Our students often have the advantage of state-of-the-art equipment in their classrooms, which our industry partners have loaned, or donated. This kind of hands-on experience is invaluable and gives our students a competitive edge when it comes time to enter the workforce.

I hope that you will take advantage of all that MSU-Northern has to offer and that you will make the most of your time here. We are dedicated to your success, and we look forward to watching you grow and thrive during your time at our university.
