Math & Engineering Sciences
Develop your quantitative reasoning and critical thinking as tools for deeper understanding of the physical world in your chosen discipline.
When you choose to major in engineering or math at Bethel, you’ll be preparing for a future in many exciting careers. Engineering students might work in aeronautics, automotive, or electronics and computer fields. A degree in math can lead to a job in applied math, public policy or teaching, to name just a few opportunities.
A unique aspect of the math and engineering program is that you can earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics/physics from Bethel and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from either Trine University or the University of Notre Dame (both located in Indiana).

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science will be primarily an on-ground program designed for traditional students.
Train graduates who will be well prepared to attend graduate programs in computer science; be prepared to innovate, design, and build computing systems at tech-driven companies; and be prepared to pursue their work and calling in support of God’s Kingdom.
Upon completion of the program, graduates should be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in computer science content knowledge in the areas of discrete structures, programming, algorithms, systems, and software engineering.
- Demonstrate proficiency in writing and debugging programs in a variety of languages (including C++, Java, Python, and Visual Basic);
- Design, implement, and optimize computer systems to solve industry based problems; and
- Articulate the relevance and impact of a Christian world view in addressing current issues in computer technology.
With the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education degree, students can combine their in-depth math courses with the professional teaching skills they'll need to succeed in grades 5-12. There are opportunities for hands-on experience inside and outside the classroom, student teaching and faculty mentoring.
Minor: Computer Science courses in this program complement a variety of majors, teaching the fundamentals of programming, web design and networking.
