This paper expresses the experience of two campus chaplains at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. Their initial bewilderment changed into a better understanding of their parish, once they developed a tool to see and to explain the tacit spiritual dimensions of engineering. In short, they discovered a hidden but strong spirituality among engineers, which, once expressed, helped their students to understand their own motivation to become an engineer.
