Each year, Olivet’s growing engineering program sends more new
professionals into the world to engineer a better, safer and stronger
environment. As an Olivet engineer, you
begin your education in the Martin D. Walker School of Engineering, the modern three-story wing of Reed Hall of Science that provides
the space, tools and curriculum of a world-class program.
Small classes afford close interaction with engineering
faculty members, who are experienced professionals in their respective
specialties and gifted mentors for future engineers.

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
