With the expansion, it'll be able to accommodate between 250 and 300 students, sixty more than it has now. The project costs $10.5 million. The expansion will offer everything from wireless internet to computer controlled hydraulics, to a welding room, to state of the art crane systems.

Terry Marohl – Diesel Tech Instructor: “In the ag industry the over the road truck, the construction industry. There's a severe shortage of technicians and this will help us to alleviate that shortage and increase our enrollment capacity.”

The State of North Dakota is funding most of the project. Work is expected to be complete in June of 2013.
