工程专业

Westmont乙.S. in general engineering promotes specialization, job opportunities and graduate school. To the Christian liberal arts, we add a solid math and science 基金会 with in-depth content in all critical, technical engineering areas. Christian experts teach small classes (averaging 10) where students learn by doing and get to know professors. Hands-on, design-oriented experiences bring technical content to life.

We focus on engineering design and innovation because design differentiates engineering from other technical disciplines. Engineers create (design) products, processes and services to help people. As Christians, we endeavor to love people and help them lead better lives. Design Innovation (DI) plays a central role in multiple courses:

  • 工程 and the Liberal Arts (first year)
  • 初级设计
  • Senior Capstone Design (two semesters) focusing on industry-sponsored projects.

We include DI through mini design experiences incorporating technical content in various courses.

The Christian liberal arts help graduates excel in their careers. While engineering practice requires great technical competence, the engineering industry increasingly demands thoughtfulness and skills that the Christian liberal arts teach: leadership, 团队合作, 冲突管理, 人际关系技巧, 同理心, negotiation and written and oral communication skills.

Westmont 工程 integrates professional endeavors with faith. We creatively design things to improve people’s lives, which aligns with Christ’s command to “love others as ourselves” (Matt. 22:39). Our junior design course emphasizes designing for service.
