Bismarck State College (BSC) announces the promotion of Alicia Uhde to Dean of Automation, Energy and Advanced Technologies (AEAT).
To address workforce needs, BSC expanded its Energy academic division earlier this year to include energy programs plus additional, high-demand career pathway programs in automation and other advanced technologies. The result is the new AEAT academic division led by Uhde.
With a career at BSC spanning 19 years, Uhde brings a wealth of experience and expertise to her new role. Previously serving as the BSC Polytechnic Program Outreach Director and as the program manager and department chair for Energy programs, she has consistently demonstrated a commitment to excellence and innovation in education.
In her new role, Uhde is responsible for overseeing credit and non-credit AEAT programs and the implementation of high-quality academic programming with industry-aligned curricula. She also provides leadership for Career and Technical Education (CTE) accreditation, K-12 partnerships, Business and Industry Leadership Teams (BILTs), and public-private partnerships.
“Alicia Uhde’s promotion to the Dean of Automation, Energy and Advanced Technologies is a testament to her dedication to the academic community at Bismarck State College and her commitment to advancing the college's mission of providing relevant and industry-leading education,” says BSC Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Dan Leingang.
Uhde holds A.S. and A.A. degrees from BSC, a B.S. in Sociology and Human Resources from South Dakota State University and a M.B.A. in Management from the University of Mary.
