M State's Civil Engineering Technology program has an articulation agreement with Minnesota State University Moorhead. Graduates from M State's program can transfer seamlessly into MSUM's bachelor degree programs in Operations Management and Construction Management.
Articulation agreements ensure that students completing specified coursework or degree programs at M State will transfer into designated programs at partner universities/colleges per the terms of the agreement. This cooperative effort eliminates or minimizes the questions and confusion that sometimes accompany transfer and allows our students to be confident that their degree from M State will satisfy a substantive portion of the completion requirements for the bachelor's degree at the university/college they will be attending.
