At Calvin University, engineers don’t just solve problems—we’re rebuilding a broken world. Blend your technical skills with the study of literature, philosophy, religion, and history to foster a Christ-centered vision of life that is effective and sensitive to society’s needs.

Christian engineers have a higher calling to understand the society in which we live and work. Our solutions should not be limited to a single problem: they should contribute to a broader vision of Christian citizenship.
