College of Engineering


Design. Build. Sustain.

Perhaps the defining trait of the Anderson University College of Engineering is its distinctiveness in providing a comprehensive engineering education that combines our liberal arts tradition within a Christian worldview. Students of the College, which was announced in 2020, will experience the integration of faith and learning as the principles of engineering are taught within a Christian worldview. This is essential to the College’s mission as it nurtures students in their understanding and respect for God’s creation—and empowers them to transform the world in an ethical, moral, and responsible manner. 


The Engineering Discipline

As an engineer, you will design, build, test and manufacture components, systems and processes that transform our built environment for the benefit of all humanity. Whether as an electrical and computer engineer or a mechanical engineer, your future is that of an impactful contributor. The College of Engineering is where foundational science, the engineering mindset and servant leadership are joined to address the challenges of our built world.

Anderson University is a comprehensive liberal arts university committed to individual, organizational and institutional excellence. Our engineering community of students, faculty, staff and administration actively affirm and proclaim the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ as the foundation and ultimate guide for our lives and our relations with others and with the world in which we live. These core principles are foundational for our College of Engineering as we work to transform the lives of our students so they may positively impact the built world.
