The engineering program equips students to glorify God by meeting the needs of the world with responsible and caring engineering.
Our program is marked by these features:
Integrating Christian faith into the curriculum as a foundation for understanding the role of science and technology in society and shaping engineers with a calling of service to the world
Providing opportunities to prepare graduates with the cultural competencies for participation in the international marketplace and for addressing the challenges faced by people in the developing world
Encouraging the cultivation of an entrepreneurial mindset, business acumen, and the leadership and learning skills that contribute to the growth of enterprises that build communities
Emphasizing that today’s complex problems require integration and analysis across engineering disciplines, the sciences, and the liberal arts to inform engineering design decision-making, extend critical thinking, and advance communication skills
Infusing the classroom with real-world engineering experience, challenging students to address open-ended design problems with multiple constraints in a team environment, and facilitating internships for students
Creating a hands-on learning community that features small classes in which a diverse array of students interact with each other and with experienced faculty committed to undergraduate teaching and mentoring
Advocating a thoughtful framework for technological development that stewards the resources of the world to enable the long-term flourishing of human and non-human aspects of God’s creation
The BSE degree from Calvin is designed to provide a foundation for productive engineering work in God’s world. The objectives of the program are that recent graduates will:
- develop the basic principles and skills necessary for engineering (including mathematics, the sciences, business, and the humanities) for appropriate assessment and analysis of current and complex problems.
generateeffective solutions to problems and move them toward successful implementation. andcommunicate ideas successfully in multidisciplinary environments, exhibiting awareness of cultural context and team dynamics. commitmentto social responsibility, sustainability, and the continued learning necessary to address the pressing problems of our contemporary world.
Throughout their lives, our graduates will act as Christ’s servants whose faith leads them to live with integrity and be called to leadership in advocating for appropriate engineering solutions that incorporate relevant technology.
Calvin’s engineering program will demonstrate that its graduates have:
abilityto identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics abilityto apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors abilityto communicate effectively with a range of audiences abilityto recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts abilityto function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives abilityto develop and conduct appropriate ,analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions abilityto acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies abilityto articulate the meaning of a Christian perspective for responsible engineering and technology development
