Appropriate & Sustainable Engineering Minor

Program Description

The Appropriate and Sustainable Engineering minor is a direct response to our Christian calls for stewardship of our planet and service to the poor. Here, we seek to address our environmental footprint in the developed world through sustainable engineering solutions while addressing the needs of the world’s poor through development of appropriate technology.

This program, which prepares students to apply engineering skills to help meet the unique needs of developing communities, pairs well with any of SPU's Engineering majors or with a major in Physics.
