ACU undergraduate engineering and physics majors pursue a deeper understanding of the physical world through theory, application, analysis and practical design. Their education comes under the mentorship of dedicated Christian faculty who are active research physicists, and who guide them in unrivaled opportunities for research at top national laboratories and private firms. An ACU degree in engineering or physics prepares students to lead the world in developing technologies that improve lives.
