Student Testimonials

"I liked the small classes that allowed the teachers to help every student. If I had a question they could point me in the right direction. The teachers are understanding if you talk to them."

- Danielle, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student


"Some of my favorite things from my experience in the AD&E program include going on all the field trips, working on the Design Charrette, and being able to participate in various extracurricular activities, such as the CDT club and the IBS Competition. Those events allowed me to not only grow connections with my peers, but it also allowed me to put my education to use in a real-world setting."

- Emily, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student


"NDSCS was the right choice for me because there were no fluff classes. The classes required for specific programs just jump right into it."

- Amanda, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student


"My experience at NDSCS was life changing and eye opening to the world I was graduating into. I liked the ability to be creative and use my thoughts or visions in a way personal to me. The environment on campus was perfect for me at the point in my life I was in. The low key but chill environment was perfect for me."

- Bennett, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student


"What I liked best about the AD&E program was how nice the teachers are. With the class sizes smaller than big colleges, they know who you are and that makes it easy to talk to them and get help with schoolwork if you need it."

- Hannah, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student


"NDSCS was the right choice for me because I have always struggled as a student, but having smaller classes gave me the help I need from the teacher. I'm not one to ask for help on my own."

- James, Architectural Drafting and Estimating Technology student

Alumni Testimonials

"NDSCS set me on my ideal career path by having instructors that lived in the industry for a time and were able to bring that real-world application to the students in the classroom. They were able to not only teach the technical aspects of drafting and estimating, but also how the construction industry operates and what we could expect once we entered the workforce."

- Chris Hauck, NDSCS Graduate

"I truly believe that if you can dream it, you can do it and at NDSCS, your dreams might be put to the test, but eventually after two years of hard work, you too can have your dream job."

- Alecia Hess, 2012 NDSCS Graduate

"NDSCS helped  prepare me for the job I have now at Obernel Engineering as a CAD/BIM Technician. The teachers are amazing because they are easy to talk to and I was never nervous or scared to ask a question. I had a great time at NDSCS, it went by way too fast."

- Hannah Pietron, 2020 NDSCS Graduate
