BISMARCK, ND – Starting in the fall of 2018 Bismarck State College Engineering Technology students will be trained using only the most up-to-date equipment thanks to a new partnership with a leading regional sales company of surveying technology and equipment.

Frontier Precision, headquartered in Bismarck with offices in Minnesota, Colorado, Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Idaho, has partnered with the BSC Engineering Technology program to equip their surveying lab with state-of-the-art technology and equipment at no cost to BSC each academic year.

“This allows us to maintain a modern surveying lab and that would be very difficult for us to do otherwise,” said BSC Associate Professor of Civil Engineering Technology Dave Sagsveen. “This gives us the opportunity to put the newest equipment available in the hands of our students.”

Each school year BSC students will have access to $100,000 to $150,000 worth of brand new tools and equipment.

“We wanted to be able to participate in the education side of the industry,” says Frontier Precision President and CEO Dennis Kemmesat. “We want BSC students to have the opportunity to train with the most advanced technology, giving them an advantage in the field.”

Frontier Precision will also provide training for students alongside their own employees as a type of mentorship program.

Kemmesat, a BSC alumnus, said “I like to stay engaged with BSC and we wanted to partner with them from a community aspect. It’s exciting to introduce new technology to new students.”
