Incorporating and Assessing Christian Worldview into an Engineering Program at Baylor University

Ken Van Treuren and Steve Eisenbarth
Baylor University

ABET EC 2000 has changed the way that engineering programs are evaluated for accreditation. As a result, each program has developed objectives and outcomes that are consistent with the university mission. At Baylor University, the teaching with a Christian worldview is an important part of the university mission. As such, each department and program within the department must support this aspect. This paper will outline the recent process used to develop Program Educational Objectives and Expected Graduate Outcomes at Baylor University which should include a statement that supports the university mission. Comparisons will be made between Baylor University and other religiously affiliated universities. A survey of what Professors are currently doing to teach with a Christian worldview in classes at Baylor University will be included. Some discussion about assessment of Christian worldview will also be included.
