UND College of Engineering shows off its state-of-the-art facilities to the public and talk future collaborations with Norwegian partners in October

The University of North Dakota College of Engineering & Mines played host to the public on Friday, Oct. 9, for a grand tour of the College.

The Dean's Tour, as it was called, included a ribbon-cutting and dedication of a new student study lounge for the College, located on the south side of Upson II Hall.

"Quality students deserve quality facilities, and we have the best the students," said CEM Dean Hesham El-Rewini, who helped lead the tour.

The tour also showcased several new laboratories, smart-classroom, additional students spaces, computer lab and the CEC construction site.

UND President Robert Kelley also took part in the day's events.

Also, at CEM, two Norwegian faculty members from the University of Bergen in Norway visited recently to discuss new technologies in the field as well as additional resources collaborations between the two schools and even the potential for a new course.

UND and the University of Bergen have been developing a strong relationship through faculty and students exchanges for the past two years.
