Engineering Program - Experiences & Testimonials


Justin Galbraith, ‘10
Precision Mechanical Engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (B.A. Physics, Greenville, B.S. Mechanical Engineering, the Harvey Jordan Award winner at UIUC) 

“With passionate, caring professors that encourage critical thinking and problem solving, Greenville College provided me with a robust understanding of science and mathematics, all within the context of a comprehensive liberal arts education. Upon transferring to the University of Illinois, I felt extremely well prepared from my time at Greenville and was able to excel and become a capable, practicing engineer.”

David Brooks, '14
Process Engineer at Metal Container Corporation (B.A., Physics, Greenville, B.S., Mechanical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis)

“Studying at Greenville College gave me the opportunity to have an intimate and personalized education in which to cultivate my base knowledge in the liberal arts and sciences. I was able to know my professors personally, which allowed them to learn of my interests and my passions.”  

Dwight Sanders, '14
Engineer at Intelligrated, (B.A., Physics, Greenville, B.S. Mechanical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis) 

“The dual-degree program allowed me to experience the awesome culture and liberal arts education at Greenville College as well as the top-tier engineering program. My education in physics and mathematics from Greenville College made me well prepared for any challenge I faced as an engineering student at Washington University in Saint Louis. I heard multiple times that the engineering programs love dual–degree students because they know what it takes to succeed at an academic level and end up having significantly higher success rates than traditional engineering students. I graduated in the top of my engineering class at Washington Univ. and got my current job work for Intelligrated in Saint Louis providing engineering solutions to many large companies around the globe including, Walmart, 7-Eleven, and Annheiser-Busch.”
