CEC

Christian Engineering Conference


This is the old website. For more up-to-date information, see the new Christian Engineering Society website.

The Christian Engineering Conference (CEC) is held every two years (with dinner meetings during odd years). The conference was formerly called the Christian Engineering Education Conference (CEEC). The conference is open to all Christians interested in engineering. We welcome participation by all those interested in integrating their Christian faith with engineering and technology. Faculty from Christian College and University engineering departments, faculty from state and public institutions, as well as engineers from industry are welcome and encouraged to attend. Papers and panel discussions at the conference are on the topic of what it means to be a Christian engineer.
