Christian Engineering Education Conference
There are 215K students in Evangelical Christian College or 2.2% of all college
students. Each year about 65K BS degrees in Engineering are awarded in the U.S.
If we apply this 2.2% to all the BS degrees we might reasonably estimate there
would be about 1430 engineering degrees from our Christian schools. The actual
number is about 500. Why? Why don’t we have 50 to 100% more students?
Are the young people from the churches going to the wrong schools to study engineering
because they are not aware of our fine programs? Is it a communications issue
or is it something more fundamental? We should understand this phenomenon and
assertively address it as a group.
