Real Success Stories

Alumnus Kyle Silveus ’09

Civil engineer at The Troyer Group

Solid preparation at Bethel (as part of the 3-2 engineering program), coupled with biblical studies courses, set Kyle Silveus up for success on The Troyer Group's project of recreating Noah's Ark. Read the full story in the Bethel Magazine.

“The engineering program [at Bethel] gave me an excellent foundation. The liberal arts classes provided me with a well-rounded education, and it allowed me to study the Bible, which I wouldn’t have gotten with a straight engineering degree at Trine.”
