Christian Engineering Conference (formerly CEEC)

Bi-annually, in odd years, we gather for a conference to present academic papers and share ideas on the interface of Christianity and engineering.  Attendees should be Christians interested in engineering and technology (see guidelines for more).

On non-conference (even) years, we hold a dinner gathering at the ASEE annual conference (American Society for Engineering Education).

Our colleague, Don Peter, from Seattle Pacific University offers these reflections on the bi-annual conferences:

My first CEEC was the first one held – 20 years ago under that able leadership and hosting of Calvin College. This is where I became much more aware of my colleagues in Christ who taught at such places as Messiah, Dordt, Andrews, Olivet, and John Brown. This is where I was personally encouraged and edified by the faith and dedication to Christian engineering education of the various fellow faculty members I met, including those who taught at public institutions, like my roommate in the Calvin dorm room, David Rogers from North Dakota State. Over the years I have not been able to attend every meeting, but those I have attended have never failed to be a time of inspiration and challenge. Sharing the joys, and sometimes sorrows, of our calling of helping to shape the professional and personal lives of some really great students has enriched my experience as a professor and I believe contributed to making me better at what I do.


The twelfth Christian Engineering Conference will be held at Cedarville University in 2017.
