“I knew [the engineering faculty] wanted me to succeed. They wanted to see me develop from just a freshman into a world-class employee.”

Kyle Hansen '11

Kyle Hansen ’11, an engineering major from Rochelle, Ill., not only benefited from one-on-one faculty mentoring in the highly regarded College of Engineering, he also had the opportunity to work on the construction of the Donald V. Fites Engineering Innovation Center, as part of an engineering internship. This internship led to a job upon graduation. Engineering students aren’t the only ones who engage in hands-on experiences at Valpo.

Students take on internships at a diverse range of businesses and nonprofits, and even on campus, such as in the marketing and communication department, information technology office, and elsewhere. When you’re ready, the Career Center will help with placement in the working world or graduate school – all part of the Valpo advantage.
