Education is about more than earning a degree. At Olivet Nazarene University, a private, Christian, liberal arts college located just 50 miles south of Chicago in Bourbonnais, Ill., students focus on being, becoming, believing — in the classroom and around the world.

Here, faith is at the heart of superior academics, athletics, social atmosphere and ministry opportunities.

Engineering beyond the classroom

Throughout Olivet’s more than 100 areas of study, learning doesn’t stop in the traditional classroom. In the university’s ABET-accredited general engineering program – one of only 16 schools in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities with that distinction — students put their education to use in a variety of ways, whether it’s designing and installing a water purification system in Argentina to give a tribal village clean drinking water, developing lighting and stage technology for student productions, building a Baja car or conducting cutting-edge research.

Program offerings

In addition to a general education program with concentrations in electrical and mechanical engineering, Olivet offers geological engineering and computer engineering programs. Each program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree.

From GM to NASA

Among other places, Olivet’s engineering graduates can be found at Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Motors, Caterpillar, Whirlpool Corporation, Lockheed Martin, Ford Motor Company, Motorola, Eli Lilly and Company, the U.S. Department of Defense , the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA.

More than a degree

Olivet students leave with more than just the tools to succeed in a career. Here, the mission is to train students for lives of service, and there are countless opportunities at Olivet for personal and spiritual growth. Whether their chosen field has been engineering or a myriad of other professions, Olivetians are making a difference in the world.
