Grand Valley is West Michigan’s best engineering resource. We’ve built something exceptional, bringing together college, companies, and community.
There are engineers, and then there are Laker engineers. Our nationally recognized curriculum is industry-inspired, project-based, and requires three semesters of mandatory co-operative, on-site learning. As a result, Laker engineers are in high demand with 100% of them employed upon graduation.
Since its inception, we have embraced collaboration with local industry. Our industry partners provide us with inspiration, insight, projects, volunteers, and even instructors. We have provided them with completed projects that solve real-world problems, and graduates who enter the workplace well-equipped to help their employers thrive.
Together with our industry partners, we are inspiring tomorrow’s engineers with our K-12 STEM outreach programs. In our region, only Grand Valley brings so many generations and disciplines together to ignite excitement in future engineers and scientists through programs like Science Olympiad, FIRST Robotics, and Science Technology and Engineering Preview Summer (STEPS) Camp.
