Creationeering in the 21st Century: A Biblical Mandate

This session distinguishes between science and engineering and the biblical mandate of creationeering which includes the creation of new materials, systems, structures, and processes. Creationeering is the joining of engineering with business aspects for entrepreneurship.  An overview of the different types of engineering, why to consider engineering, and what to expect and how to succeed in college as an engineering major in the Creationeering context is presented.
