Minor in Engineering Design

Complement any major with a well-rounded perspective of the engineering design and value creation process.

Interested in discovering the basics of engineering thinking, learning how engineering transforms creative ideas into creative systems, products, machinery, and more, or exploring engineering's potential impact on the world? CCU's Engineering Design minor offered through the School of Science and Engineering is the perfect complement to any course of study, geared toward teaching non-engineering students about the engineering design and value creation process. Regardless of your field of study at CCU, the engineering design minor helps you to gain a broader, well-rounded perspective as you attain relevant knowledge and skills that can be applied within a variety of career options.

The Engineering Design minor is a collaborative experience for non-engineering majors who may not have all of the basic science, mathematics, and engineering science courses needed to engage fully and independently in engineering design. Rather, this program partners engineering design minors with existing engineering students in a peer-engineering capacity. An engineering design minor at CCU expands on real-world skills and synergy, equipping engineers and non-engineers to effectively communicate, develop, and dream together as innovative leaders with kingdom impact.

Engineering Design at CCU

Every course in the Engineering Design minor intentionally examines the aspects and principles of engineering design from a biblical perspective. Taught by experienced and spiritually mature faculty and staff, throughout the program you will achieve a solid introduction to engineering principles and computer programs used in creation, modification, analysis, and optimization of technical value, all through a Christian worldview.

As you practice identifying, analyzing, and solving real-world engineering problems, you will also be challenged to incorporate your Christian faith into aspects of the field. In addition to exploring biblical ethics and moral reasoning from both a Christian viewpoint and you will also be introduced to National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics in order to consider ethics from an engineering technical perspective.

About the School of Science and Engineering

In the School of Science and Engineering at Colorado Christian University, character forms the bedrock of God-honoring and kingdom-building science. We aim to help our students explore the world that God created, use cutting-edge technology, and discover how faith interacts with questions that arise out of studying science. We focus on teaching our students how to articulate a Christian perspective on issues such as bioethics, ecology, and human life.

Science and engineering programs are taught within the world of ideas, synthesizing the liberal arts, advanced theories, and applied technology. Our faculty intentionally seek out ways to hone a Christ-like character in our students, inspiring them to become moral and ethical, world-changing leaders. Purposefully small classes and laboratories invite students to learn with their hands as well as their minds. This instills a level of mastery necessary to become a leader in rapidly-advancing fields of science and engineering.
