Exploring God's Creation from a Scientific Perspective

The ORU College of Science and Engineering encompasses five departments including Behavioral Science; Biology and Chemistry; Engineering; Computing and Mathematics; and Health Physical Education and Recreation.  Through its own unique approach, each department gives you the opportunity to discover God's natural world and thereby enlarge your Christian worldview.  Rarely will you find such an opportunity to receive a Christ-centered education in areas often considered difficult degree areas while surrounded by such cooperative, caring and intellectually inquisitive students and faculty.
