BISMARCK—Andeavor, an oil company that operates 10 refineries in the western U.S., has awarded the University of Mary in Bismarck a $500,000 grant to support the development of a new laboratory within the new School of Engineering.
The grant will support the development of an on-campus Control Systems Laboratory that will allow students to learn, apply and test underlying fundamental knowledge and state-of-the-art field applications used in engineering.
“We are extremely blessed and grateful to Andeavor for its generous gift that will help foster the numerous skills needed in today’s engineering environment,” said University President Monsignor James P. Shea.
Currently, engineering students must travel to Grand Forks to complete their engineering coursework through a partnership with the University of North Dakota.
“We are proud to support the new School of Engineering and its mission to further develop a strong occupational workforce in North Dakota and beyond,” said Ron Day, director of government and public affairs for Andeavor.
