Great Falls Area Students learn about engineering options

1+3 Engineering allows students to complete the first year of their engineering degree at Great Falls College MSU and then transfer to Montana State University in Bozeman

GREAT FALLS— Great Falls College MSU, in conjunction with Montana State University, will be holding two sessions on Oct. 8 to give local high school students, their parents and community members more information about the 1+3 Engineering transfer program.

1+3 Engineering allows students to complete the first year of their engineering degree at Great Falls College MSU and then transfer to Montana State University in Bozeman for the last three years – an arrangement that can save students up to $10,000.

High school students are invited to Great Falls College MSU, 2100 16th Ave. S., from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 8 to learn about engineering options. The students will meet in Heritage Hall.

In the evening, parents and community members are invited to attend an information session from 5:30-6:30 pm, also in Heritage Hall at Great Falls College MSU.

These sessions will give students, parents and community members an opportunity to learn the various types of work engineers do, and reasons to consider a career in engineering.

The daytime session for students will feature interactive, hands-on activities giving students an understanding of the various disciples within engineering. Students will engage in different engineering activities to help decide which type of engineering they want to go into.

"Engineering can be an exceptionally rewarding career field," said Dr. Leanne Frost, Director of General Studies at GFC MSU. "Options like this help students save significantly on tuition, housing and fees. It also allows students to begin in smaller class sizes with more one-on-one instructor time, and then transfer to MSU."

High school students can register for the event by contacting their school counselor. No RSVP is needed for the evening session. Homeschool students are welcome to attend either session.
