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.
