The SSU engineering program single handedly propelled me into to my career - showing me much more than engineering principles but how to function effectively in the professional world. The holistic and learning-by-doing approach employed by SSU engineering exposes its graduates to many career paths, but also allows students to focus on their technical passions. SSU uniquely positions students to hit the ground running once they get into industry. The small class sizes, access to equipment, one-on-one attention from professors, and industry networking, directly contribute to student and alumni success. I would not trade my experience at SSU for any other university. I feel that the faculty and staff have honed me into the effective and successful engineer I am today.
