Civil Engineer, ISG

These experiences taught the importance of practical solutions to engineering challenges. The hands-on nature of the MSU Civil Engineering program provided me with the confidence to succeed. Throughout my education, I was encouraged to apply for summer internships, provided with opportunities to assist in research and solved practical real-world problems in the classroom. This additional knowledge helped me understand challenges present in the field and respect the unknowns on all construction sites.

The Minnesota State Mankato curriculum provides students with the ability to develop soft skills by stepping out of the classroom and collaborating with regional professionals. These soft skills, coupled with technical education, have allowed me to excel in a variety of professional settings. I would recommend Minnesota State University to any student interested in pursuing a career in civil engineering. The program is tailored to individuals seeking a practical education that focuses on applying technical skills to real-world situations.
