Our engineering alumni work in nearly every engineering field and for many top worldwide companies.
ONU's engineering program has produced hundreds of engineers who work in nearly every engineering field, including: Automotive, Civil, Aerospace, Defense, Agricultural, Biomedical, Electrical, Sporting Goods, Information Technology and Communications. Our alumni are passionate about engineering and frequently return to campus to provide guest lectures to our students. Many of our alumni support the program in tangible, ongoing ways — providing financial donations, donating equipment, making internship and employment opportunities available, and collaborating on research collaboration. With Olivet’s Bachelors of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree and four concentration areas (Mechanical, Electrical, Geological, Electrical) from which to choose, our graduates have the ability to find direct employment in a wide variety of industries. Even beyond those concentrations, many complete a supporting minor (biology, astronomy, business, art and others) while doing their undergraduate studies. This allows them to branch even further into adjacent industries, such as Biomedical, Aerospace, Business and Architecture.
These ONU alumni represent the many who have enjoyed the benefits and inherent flexibility that our B.S.E. major provides.
