Then at 5:30 p.m., in Heritage Hall, Montana State University and Great Falls College will provide information on engineering opportunities available, followed by a question and answer period. All prospective students, their parents and community members are invited to attend and learn more about the engineering profession, MSU Bozeman's College of Engineering and the 1+3 Engineering transfer program available at Great Falls College MSU.
