BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A prototype of a lunar mining robot built by Montana State University engineering and computer science students for a NASA competition helped dedicate a new College of Engineering.

The robot dug up symbolic scoops of sand and dignitaries used ceremonial shovels for the dedication.

The college is being funded by a $50 million gift from MSU alumnus Norm Asbjornson.

According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (https://bit.ly/2dnsWOS ), construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
