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.
For more information about our program—including core requirements, elective options, and four-year models for each of our four areas of concentration—see our Advising page.

Labs and projects
Labs and projects are a part of many engineering courses at Calvin, beginning with Engineering 101 during the fall semester of your first year and ending with a Senior Design project. These add strong hands-on experiences to your classes, making the ideas clear by putting the tools for solving problems directly into your hands.
Immerse yourself in the design process and serve our local community by working with local organizations to create something that makes a tangible difference.
