Mission, Vision, & Goals


The Mission of AU Engineering is to develop highly-­qualified, innovative, servant leaders.

Living the Mission:

  • Highly Qualified Engineers
    • We provide a Christ­-centered, holistic education, grounded in the liberal arts that inspires students toward excellence and integrity and continued learning in Engineering.
  • Innovative
    • We model resourceful, pioneering and creative thinking to uniquely mentor students to deal with the challenges of vocation, life and community
  • Servant Leaders
    • AU Engineering Graduates understand and demonstrate their responsibility to use the skills they acquire while at AU to serve mankind with “Christ-­like Character” (II Peter 1:1-­11)


  • Theoretical Knowledge
    • Students will have advanced mathematical, scientific, and engineering skills including significant design, problem solving, and data processing ability ­ built upon a liberal arts foundation.
  • Practical Experience
    • Students will have significant hands­-on experiences, driven by laboratory exercises, research assistantships, internships, project management, and interdisciplinary opportunities.
  • Grounded in Faith
    • Students will be life­-long learners who, through the lens of a Christian worldview, will recognize God’s calling on their lives to serve the Church and society.
