Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Success Lab

The Success Lab provides project-based experiences for students, with an emphasis on software development and the exploration of emerging technologies.

Students will train through projects and experiential learning as they work on funded and unfunded projects and participate in credit and non-credit based learning opportunities. Students will also share their experiences through demonstrations, presentations, and trainings. Student creativity will push the study of disruptive technologies that may reshape the technology landscape.
