Christian Life Profile

Abilene Christian University is a diverse, welcoming, academically rigorous community redefining what it means to be a leading university in the 21st century. 

We are the best in the world at providing an exceptional academic education in a Christ-centered environment. Here you will be challenged intellectually while developing spiritually, all in preparation for successful Christian service and leadership.  

Our Engineering and Physics majors pursue a deeper understanding of the physical world through theory, application, analysis, and practical design. 

The study of engineering is dedicated to glorifying the Creator. We admire God’s handiwork in the laws of the universe, and seek to understand and apply those principles to solve big problems while improving the lives of people around the world.

Their education comes under the mentorship of dedicated Christian faculty who are active researchers in their fields. They are respected internationally for their work, and with an average class size of 10 students, you’ll get to know your professors well—often with an opportunity to become a colleague. Involvement in the process of research and discovery sets ACU apart from engineering majors at other universities. 

    We want to be a place where you can grow in your faith and come to better understand who Jesus is and what He’s called you to do. Be a part—and discover how your life and work can make a real difference in the world.



We offer 70 undergraduate majors that include more than 135 areas of study, 27 master's degree programs, and three doctoral programs. 

We draw students from around the world with a vibrant community of more than 4,900 students representing 51 states and territories and 40 nations.
