Engineering Departments at Christian Colleges and Universities

Many of our readers are on the faculty of engineering departments at Christian colleges and universities. Many other readers are graduates of these programs. A simple list of engineering programs at Christian colleges and universities is available on the CES website. We would like to begin a series of articles highlighting one of these programs each month, providing more in-depth descriptions. The first one appeared in our previous issue, providing an overview of the program at Olivet. What would you like to see in these articles? What is important to know about a program? If you would be willing to write the article for your institution, please contact the editor, Steve VanderLeest.

International Conference on Faith-Based Engineering Missions

Lipscomb University is hosting a one day conference and forum on
Engineering Missions, Saturday, August 4, 2007

Imagine what could happen if:

  • The Christian engineers in the world used their talents to help the
    needy and the downtrodden while sharing their faith in Christ!
  • Engineers put their God-given talents to work solving the problem of affordable clean water and sanitation.
  • Engineering talent was used to help villagers in Africa learn to make
    a living wage off of their land or in their homes.
  • Engineers collaborated in the design of appropriate technology to
    improve the lives of those in third world countries.
  • This is your invitation to explore the possibilities with other
    like-minded engineers!

You can participate by:

  • sharing your experiences
  • learning from others
  • participating in the dialogue

This conference is open to all engineers from any walk of faith.

You can learn more at: and follow the

CEEC Dinner In Honolulu

Will you be at ASEE in Hawaii this summer?  Join us for dinner!  We try to get together for a meal at ASEE in the years between the biannual CEEC.  We plan to meet at a restaurant in Honolulu near the ASEE conference site on Monday evening, June 25.  We’re not certain of the time yet, but we will likely start sometime between 5:30pm and 7:30pm local time.  The cost is likely to be around $25 or $30 per person.  We need a tentative count in order to make a reservation, so please RSVP to Melani Plett,, with the following information:  name, school/institution, email address, cell phone, your hotel name in Honolulu.  If you are coming with your spouse, please provide your spouse’s name as well. 

CEEC2008 in Pittsburgh

The next Christian Engineering Education Conference will be June 25-27, 2008 at Geneva College (near Pittsburgh, the ASEE site that year).  Please consider volunteering for our steering committee to help make plans for this conference.  We need organizers, reviewers, worship leaders/readers/accompanists, and more.  Please contact Steve VanderLeest,, and indicate how you could help.
