We really don’t mean that in an obnoxious, braggy way. We’re just being real. Will you be intellectually brutalized here? Probably. But you won’t be alone. And when all is said and done, you’ll leave this place as a technological ninja ready to change what’s possible.

Anna Braun Junior Chemistry & Chemical Engineering

But anyone can play in the sun. I’d rather figure out a better way of using it. So I’ve been working on research with Professor DeVasher focusing on the degradation of perovskite photovoltaic cells. It’s a material that could make solar panels a lot more affordable, which would be better for everyone.

What do our chemical engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering programs have in common? They’re all ranked #1 by U.S. News & World

Report. They ranked our civil engineering program #2, but we’re pretty sure that’s a typo.


I’ll tell you a little about Anna that she wouldn’t. First, she’s a Goldwater Scholar, which is one of the hardest academic awards you can earn. And not only did her research land her an internship at the Department of Energy in Colorado, but they asked her back for a second year. That’s a big deal, because it doesn’t happen very often. – Dr. Rebecca DeVasher, Associate Professor of Chemistry


Mason Lott Senior Mechanical Engineering

Not us. It used to take a lot longer, but I put together an assembly guide connecting my background in mechanical engineering with an assignment in my technical communications class. So it sped things up. Bicycle Assembly Day’s awesome. Hundreds of students come together, have fun, and help a lot of local kids get new bikes. By the way, if you need to find Mason since his 2018 graduation, he is at a little Fortune 500 outfit called Cummins, Inc., where he is an engineer working on their 14-foot long, 16-cylinder, 4,500 horsepower QSK95 diesel engines. They’re only the most powerful high-speed diesel engines in the world.


Brittany Clark Sophomore Biomedical Engineering & Mechanical Engineering

But it was so worth it to get a year’s worth of math classes out of the way before the start of my first quarter so I could focus on the things I love about engineering. I just want to help people, and so does Rose. Through the Make It Happen class, we built a gait trainer for a young boy in Moldova who had multiple disabilities and needed muscle development. I love being at a place that’s all about making life better.

Jennifer Hong Sophomore Mechanical Engineering

I was really drawn to the Human Powered Vehicle Team. Before long I realized no matter which team at the BIC (Branam Innovation Center) I did, I was going to love it. Rose has won like 13 regional and national titles, we compete all over the world. But the best part is collaborating with others. When you spend 12 hours a day at the BIC, you make friends fast.


Carlotta Berry Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The team that designed the first crash test dummies made all of them the size and shape of an average man. Because all of them were men. So when they weren’t getting data relevant to women or children, they obviously changed it. But it just shows how important it is for women in STEM to make their voices heard and reshape the world’s perceptions of engineering and engineers.

You don’t get into Rose-Hulman, Rose-Hulman gets into you. The campus is so supportive and collaborative, some of our graduates got advanced degrees and came back here to continue that teaching tradition. Several members of our Student Affairs staff were students here and returned because they wanted to ensure each new group of students has a great experience, too.


So of course we thought…trebuchet. That’s one of the great things I remember about Rose, we had a lot of freedom to find creative solutions to open-ended problems. It helped develop my critical thinking and engineering intuition that I use today at SpaceX.

Jeff and I had a blast at Rose. I just remember wanting to go there because it was the best. Chris Wlezien ‘10 Design Engineer

What engineer wouldn’t want Rose-Hulman on their resume? I used to play hockey, and the only way to get better was to play with a better team. That’s Rose. Everyone was an A+ student. My peers pushed me to be better as much as anyone.


After just eight months, Jeff became a test director at SpaceX, working with the Falcon 9 and Merlin 9 Rockets. Chris is a design engineer, and as a side project he helped create a system for collecting water from air humidity—which is now one of five finalists in the international XPRIZE competition worth $1.75 million.

These alumni are in good company:

Andy Milluzzi ’12 landed his dream job as a systems engineer at Walt Disney World.

Dan Brunner ’08 is overseeing a project at MIT that could make the long-sought dream of fusion power a reality.

Tonya Combs ’01 is senior director and general patent counsel for the biomedicines division of Eli Lilly & Company.

Ryan Poplin ’04 is the leader of Google’s Brain Genomics Team.

Jim Umpleby ’80 is a mover and shaker, literally, as CEO of Caterpillar, a Fortune 100 company.

Alyssa Riley ’00 is working on ways to reduce acute kidney injuries in young patients as a pediatric nephrologist at Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas.
