Members of the NDSU student chapter of the Association of Transportation and Logistics toured the Fargo location of Microsoft in late October.
The students were particularly interested in changes being proposed and implemented to the company's supply chain structure and facility designs, and to learn what role logistics plays in its operations.
Students on the tour visited each of the four buildings on the Fargo campus. They learned about the history of Microsoft in Fargo and the company's commitment to environmentally friendly design as reflected in its Fargo facilities.
Students who took the tour included Sumadhr Shakya, Sardar Zahid, Nadezda Fastovtsova, Zijiian Zheng, Syeda Hina, Vu Dang, Fesseha Gebremikael, Chijioke Ifepe, Muhammad Aslaam and Hamad Alqublan.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
