Because engineers apply scientific principles and practical judgment to the economic solution of many problems concerned with human welfare, their education must include, in addition to courses in engineering analysis and design, numerous courses in natural science, mathematics, and liberal studies. Thus, the engineering program at Christian Brothers University provides each student with a liberal education designed to prepare the graduate to make important contributions not only toward the solution of specific technical problems, but also in social and environmental issues found in transportation, communications, urban redevelopment, energy production and conservation, and air and water quality.
