lectures, readings and homework assignments gave me a solid background on how
to perform the tasks I am given now. But the application of my knowledge
through labs and presentations —especially my senior design project — prepared
me the most. The most useful information I’ve taken away from my time at Olivet
is that on any level, we are only human. We will forget equations, properties,
how to use software, etc., but if we can retain the skills on how to attack
problems, we can work through our mistakes and find a way to an answer. I was
taught how to be a problem solver, and that’s what an engineer is, isn't it?” – Britny Timmer, Class of 2014
really appreciate the fact that the professors care about each student and
invest so much time and effort into each one. Their advice and support
throughout my time at Olivet was invaluable, and I hope to be able to inspire
students someday as they have inspired me.” – Amanda Luby, Class of 2013
[gave] me a solid background in many different areas of engineering — from
basic mechanics and mechanical systems, to an introduction to electrical and software
engineering. Because Olivet offers such a broad engineering education, I have a
background in many different areas and am able to understand other types of
engineers much better.” – Nicholas Pickering, Class of 2012
is unique in that it has an engineering environment that is very personal.
One's fellow engineering students are classmates who become very close friends.
There is a deep sense of interpersonal connection, and I think that pairing this
connection with intentional academic study is a recipe for a successful,
balanced individual.” – Wes Sprague, Class of 2011
a civilian engineer working for the Navy to create the plans to maintain and
retrofit ships. I spend a great deal of time traveling to different Navy
stations around the U.S. and the world, where the ships dock to verify
production drawings and troubleshoot mechanical issues. Not only did Olivet
give me the basic engineering knowledge that I would need to succeed in this
discipline, it also taught me that I can use a professional skill like engineering
to serve the Lord.” – Katie Sweet, Class of 2008
