Monday, August 31, 2015, NNU celebrated the recent accreditation of its Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) program by the international Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Achieving ABET accreditation is the culmination of an intense five-year process of program building, growth, assessment and evaluation to meet ABET’s rigorous standards.
Mark your calendars because you are not going to want to miss what is happening on September 24, 2015. Give Day is a brand new event, unlike anything we have ever done before!
NNU’s Department of Engineering is pleased to announce its programs have officially achieved ABET accreditation. ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc.) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that is an internationally recognized accreditor of college and university programs, specializing in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
Northwest Nazarene University is currently preparing for another exciting school year, one that will include new leadership, a new quad, and most of all, a new freshman class. As New Student Orientation draws near, it’s time once again to highlight one of these incoming students, and for this student in particular, we didn’t have to look very far from campus to find her.
University staff aren’t just calculating tuition costs, punching grades on to transcripts or answering phone calls, they are actively investing into the lives of students in big and small ways every day. Their unsung contributions make NNU a great place to attend and work.
New Student Rendezvous is a tradition that students look forward to and also remember for many years. A simple time of making new friends around a meal in the home of a faculty or staff member previews the unique nature of the NNU experience.
The best college traditions don’t have anything to do with houses, hazing or hangovers. When students put God and lasting friendships at the forefront, that’s when university life is at its best.
NNU’s RockSat-X engineering team, in collaboration with Boise-based American Semiconductor, Inc. (ASI), launched an experimental payload on a sub-orbital sounding rocket to 100 miles above the Atlantic Ocean on a half-hour flight on Wednesday, August 12. The payload parachuted down into the Atlantic where it was recovered by ship and returned to the NNU research lab for post-flight data analysis by the team and their collaborators.
Phase one of the campus quadrangle, part of Vision 2025, is in the final stages and took another step forward today as the 7 foot 6 inch, 412 pound Christ sculpture was placed in the center of the quad.
This summer, Northwest Nazarene University sent out four teams to foreign countries in an effort to make a difference and exemplify what it means to serve. Groups of students traveled to Haiti, Colombia, Poland and Argentina.
