BJU Freshman Engineering Students Reach for the Stratosphere

A small crowd of engineering students and their faculty gathered Saturday morning, Dec. 1, on stadium field—but they weren’t there to play soccer. They were there to launch three weather balloons equipped with cameras and other instrumentation into the stratosphere.

The launch was part of the final project of the semester for Eng 101 Introduction to Engineering, BJU’s freshman-level engineering course. The goal of the project was to launch a balloon with a payload of electronics, capture data (in this case, still photos or video) and track the balloon throughout its entire flight.

For the 39 students in the class, launch day was the culmination of months of research, collaboration and hard work. “The most exciting part of the whole project would have to be the launch day events,” says Daniel Belville, a freshman from New Hampshire. “It was the day that all of our hard work had come together, and ...

I find this interesting, (Yes, I wish I had been good in math ) During my rather short stay in the study of Electrical Engineering, the then head of Engineering department--and I don't know for what reason--pointed out that Engineering college was probably the most conservative and religious one, later in my study in the Social Sciences, I found that Engineering colleges and then followed by Agricultural colleges were the most religious/conservative -- in that order. They still may be the most conservative of the colleges relatively speaking, but I would doubt they are as conservative as when I was in Engineering. So, these young fellows have picked out a good field to be in, one where they can have old ideas in religion as long as they have new ideas on how to handle problems in the physical world.
