Stefan started at Monmouth as a physics and pre-engineering student, completing his B.A. in physics at Monmouth and his B.S. in Civil Engineering at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. He went on to earn an M.S. in Civil Engineering with a geotechnical focus at Mississippi State University.
Since 2014, Stefan has worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, primarily on projects related to dam and levee safety on the Mississippi River in Quincy, Ill. He’s also been part of a project in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to help protect the city from consistent annual flooding.
Stefan was a fullback for the Fighting Scots football team during his time at Monmouth, and he was thrilled when the College announced the addition of a B.S. in Engineering degree.
“I was very excited to hear about the new programs. It’s a very good step forward for the College, and it’s something they can really build on. It’s going to provide an avenue to good jobs and really prepare Monmouth’s students for the STEM careers of the future.”
