Purpose of the School of Science and Engineering

Recognizing God as Creator pushes us to appreciate and understand his creation more deeply — whether that looks like caring well for patients created in God’s image, being a faithful steward of the earth, or engineering products for the global good.

At the Core of our academic pursuits at ӰAV is a relationship to God, to others, to ourselves, and to the physical world we live in. Because this world and all that is in it has been created by God and placed into our care, there is a natural relationship between our faith and the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The STEM areas are the language and tools that we use to learn from the world that God has made. And when we study it, we find that the beauty and knowledge we discover points us back to the Creator.
