NDSCS Graduates Report 97 Percent Placement

Old Main

North Dakota State College of Science’s 2020 Graduate Placement Report has revealed that 97 percent of the College’s 2020 career and technical education (CTE) graduates are employed or continuing their education.

Of the 31 CTE programs, 21 reported 100 percent placement. The beginning average annual salary of a 2020 graduate is $39,480. Sixty-eight percent of the employed graduates are employed in the state of North Dakota, finding employment in 27 of the state’s 53 counties.

“NDSCS graduates are consistently in high demand,” said NDSCS President John Richman. “In spite of the challenges created by COVID-19 over the past year, we continue to see strong workforce needs in North Dakota and the region. Our graduates have the skills and experience to begin their careers in these high-demand industries.”

The NDSCS Graduate Placement Report is compiled each year by the NDSCS Student Success and Career Services office. Statistics for this year’s report were based on information gathered from 413 graduates who earned degrees, certificates and diplomas from NDSCS in terms ending in December 2019, May 2020 and August 2020.
