Alumni Voices

“Each of my professors was incredibly knowledgeable and motivating… Furthermore, student competitions were a major success because they introduced students to the industry very early on. Most students left competitions with offers or with new contacts.”

Jonathan Healey

Senior Project Engineer at Balfour Beatty Construction

“Having courses that industry professionals helped develop and having professors that were passionate about teaching and driven to see every student succeed contributed to my success, as did the continuous cycle of improving courses as the industry changes.”

Dr. Perrenoud's MEP class toured the Valero refinery in Ardmore on March 6th. Learning about the refinery processes and how project management expertise is necessary for the critical turnover projects that keep the refinery running efficiently. Big thanks to Valero Energy​, especially Jen Swenton for making it happen!
