Cassandra Stuber


Next step: system performance analyst at American Electric Power

Cassandra Stuber, who majored in electrical engineering with a concentration in advanced energy and a minor in business administration, had always had an interest in STEM. At Ohio Northern University, she discovered an excellent engineering education and abundant opportunities outside the classroom.

“The engineering college has great professors that have great connections and there are engineering clubs where you will find great friends and have memorable experiences," she says. "ONU engineering goes beyond the classroom.”

At ONU, Stuber combined her affinity for math with a growing passion for the environment by exploring the career field of energy. Through networking, she discovered that there is high demand for this line of work, and she gained a high-impact learning experience through an internship with Plug Smart, in which she assisted with configuring and installing HVAC controllers and replacing inefficient systems. 

Apart from engineering, Stuber took advantage of opportunities to connect with others across campus through her involvement with many extracurriculars, including the tennis team. All of these things made her experience at ONU even better than she imagined.

"I didn’t realize all the opportunities ONU had until I came to campus. ONU was the best fit for me because of its amazing engineering professors, job fairs and overwhelming opportunities to grow as a person and make lasting relationships.”
