I have researched other programs like this in the past, but none of them met the same expectations that I’ve come to experience at Doane with this program.

Doane met me at my level. There were classes that were challenging. I have distinct bodies of learning I draw from.

I initially thought about the big state school - but I felt like I was a number instead of an actual person.

For me, the ability to go someplace that was local, that I didn’t have to drive 40 or 50 or 60 miles to get to a class, that was huge.

I have taken other science courses online and they do not compare with how well this course was designed. The way these courses are designed ensures that we're learning the material while providing practical hands-on lessons and assignments.

Engineering isn't an easy major, no matter where you go. However, having professors here that want you to succeed and will help you any way they can makes it easier.
