|For at least the past 15 years, nearly every department graduate who was actively seeking a position in civil engineering or admission to graduate school, had acquired those before graduation. Almost 100% of our graduates have a placement before graduation. The high placement rate is due to the high quality education our students receive and the track record our graduates have in industry. It also helps that all of our faculty are very practice-oriented and involved in the professional community in the region and nationwide, thus making contacts that increase the opportunities for our graduates.
"The overall thing at Rose-Hulman is giving back. As civil engineers, we serve people every day. That kind of thing is near and dear to me." - Ben Zobrist, 2011 Civil Engineering Graduate
