About Us

Sechel Ventures owns and operates OnlineEngineeringPrograms.com (OEP). The mission of Sechel is to provide rich and informative content that addresses specific educational questions in fields with good to excellent career outlooks, such as engineering.

On OEP, the Sechel editorial team will be building out responses to frequently asked questions about online engineering education, addressing basic educational questions (Engineering 101), more detailed questions on the process, requirements, and steps to become an engineer (Becoming an Engineer), and a comparison of different branches of engineering (Specialization vs Specialization) in the FAQ. In addition, the team will provide a listing of programs by branch, doing a deep dive into several top programs and profiling each one’s professors and value propositions.
