MAJORS & DEGREES

Major in Engineering

Westmont’s B.S. 一般来说,工程促进专业化,就业机会和研究生教育. To the Christian liberal arts, 我们添加了坚实的数学和科学基础与深入的内容,在所有关键, technical engineering areas. 基督教专家教授小班授课(平均10人),学生在实践中学习,并了解教授. 亲自动手,以设计为导向的体验将技术内容带入生活.

我们专注于工程设计和创新,因为设计将工程与其他技术学科区分开来. 工程师创造(设计)产品、流程和服务来帮助人们. 作为基督徒,我们努力去爱人,帮助他们过更好的生活. 设计创新(DI)在多个课程中发挥着核心作用:

  • Engineering and the Liberal Arts (first year)
  • Junior Design
  • 高级顶点设计(两个学期)专注于行业赞助的项目.

我们通过各种课程中包含技术内容的迷你设计体验来引入DI.

基督教文科帮助毕业生在他们的职业生涯中脱颖而出. 而工程实践需要很高的技术能力, 工程行业越来越需要深思熟虑和基督教文科所教授的技能:领导力, teamwork, conflict-management, interpersonal skills, empathy, negotiation and written and oral communication skills.

Westmont Engineering将专业努力与信念融为一体. We creatively design things to improve people’s lives, 这与基督“爱人如己”的命令是一致的. 22:39). Our junior design course emphasizes designing for service.
