The Story

Controls Application Engineer at Musco Sports Lighting
Oskaloosa, Iowa

Vande Vegte works at Musco Sports Lighting in Oskaloosa, IA, a company that design lights to be used in sports fields, stadiums, and arenas ranging from community ballparks to professional stadiums throughout the United States and the world.“My position as a Controls Engineer focuses on designing electrical enclosures used to power our lights,” says Vande Vegte. “I am also meeting the needs of our customers through light dimming and programming of theatrical light shows.”

Vande Vegte says Dordt's engineering program has equipped him with the fundamental principles needed to work effectively in his field. “With my education in engineering, I have become interested in the world around me and desire to become an expert in the job that I do,” he says. “Few colleges across the U.S. offer a Christ-centered education on how to appropriately learn and do engineering. My experience at Dordt shaped me into a Christian engineer called to go out into the world and make it a better place for God's people to live in.”
