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.”

3-2 Engineering Alumnus Andrew Geisel ’16

Civil engineer at Massman Construction Co.

After graduating with a civil engineering degree from Notre Dame (as part of the 3-2 engineering program he started at Bethel), Andrew Geisel is now working in the New York area on bridges.

“I’m a Field Engineer for Massman Construction Co. Currently I’m working on the new Goethals Bridge. I work out of an office trailer next to the water on the New Jersey side of the bridge. We are working to complete the eastbound span of the bridge. Once we finish the eastbound span we can switch traffic over from the existing bridge.” Read the full story on the University of Notre Dame's web site.
