Message From the Dean
Welcome to UND's world-renowned John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, where in 2018 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary of providing the highest quality education possible at a reasonable cost to our students!
The Odegard School's focus is and has always been on our students, in both teaching and research. Whether conducting flight training at the Grand Forks International Airport in our fleet of over 100 aircraft, or engaging our students in innovative research such as space suit technology, severe weather analysis and forecasting, or planet earth and sustainability issues, the Odegard School is always focused on what is best for our students.
Our faculty and staff prepare our students to be leaders in one of four academic disciplines: Atmospheric Sciences, Aviation, Earth Systems Science and Policy, and Space Studies. We offer undergraduate Bachelor of Science degrees in Atmospheric Sciences and Aviation as well as minors in Sustainability and Space Studies. At the graduate level, we offer Masters and Ph.D. degrees in all four academic areas.
Finally, we thrive on our reputation as an innovative and an entrepreneurial college - always striving to serve societal needs in the best way possible by graduating outstanding students in all four academic disciplines. So welcome to the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. We sincerely hope you find what you are looking for!
Paul D. Lindseth, Ph.D.
