Opus College of Engineering: Brian

“I think the best resources Marquette’s College of Engineering has provided to me are the professors. Coming to college, I was extremely nervous about having all these new professors who were masters in their fields, and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to connect with them at all inside or outside of the classroom. Luckily, that could not be any more untrue. I’ve established some pretty solid relationships with my professors and feel extremely comfortable having conversations with them outside of class or saying hello to them on a walk on campus.”
Marquette always had this strong community feel in my mind before I toured the campus, so I decided I needed to check it out. Once I walked on campus and saw the Engineering building, I was hooked. Our trip through the Engineering building ended with a quick conversation with the Dean of the college. It was the first and only school that really made me feel like an individual that could offer something to the University, and I was excited to have the opportunity to come here.

Brian Stumph is completing his third term of his Co-op with EmbedTek this upcoming spring as a junior studying Electrical Engineering. He’s also the president of Sigma Phi Epison and also finds time to participate in Skunkworks Engineering Club, which allows Marquette students to gain hands-on experience working on engineering projects outside of the classroom.

Brian mentions how his tour of the Engineering Hall sealed his fate as a Golden Eagle — and we understand why. The building opened in 2011 and was built to function as a teaching tool itself, showcasing exposed mechanicals and sustainable features in order to give students a chance to study challenges of clean water, energy efficiency and safe and sustainable infrastructures all under one roof. Take a look at the different functions of the building and how our students are taking advantage.
