Starting your Engineering Degree at TWU


Get in Gear!


Why Prepare for Engineering at Trinity Western University?

We have all the necessary first-year science & math courses, and even some of the second-year courses, with professors who are experts, mostly with PhDs. And unlike at UBC or SFU or UVic or elsewhere, these courses are taught in small classes and from a Christian perspective.

You can take other TWU core courses to provide a solid foundation in the Christian liberal arts: Philosophy, History, Religious Studies, Psychology, Business, Communication, and others.

Students will find that many aspects of TWU allow them to uniquely meet many of the "non-scientific" components which are important in the training and life of an engineer.

  • Our emphasis on the liberal arts includes excellent opportunities for developing students' communication skills which are very important in engineering.
  • As a Christian university, we have a calling to be sensitive to cultural, economic, and social impacts of our work.
  • We explore and develop an interdependent and multi-faceted creation.
  • We have strong biology and environmental studies programs which are in an excellent position to help faculty and students advance the concepts of sustainable development and environmental stewardship.
  • Our Christian morals and ethics contribute to a solid understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the engineer.

Engineering is part of our mandate to develop and advance culture through wise and stewardly use of the resources entrusted to us by their and our Creator.

The world needs insightful, servant leadership by engineers whose motivations and ideals have been formulated through a critical analysis of the positive and negative cultural effects of technology.

Engineers must seek to develop technological artifacts in ways which acknowledge the fact that the users and beneficiaries are image-bearers of the Creator.
