Technology, Engineering and Design Education (BS): Licensure Concentration

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Technology, Engineering, and Design Education is offered by the Department of STEM Education in the College of Education. With an emphasis on innovation and active learning, this program prepares individuals for a variety of engineering and design employment opportunities, including a teacher licensure option and a non-licensure graphics communications option.

Teacher Licensure

Through the study of engineering and design processes, students learn how to solve technological problems, innovate and invent. They actively design, model, simulate and analyze solutions to technological challenges studies courses and explore the contributions of systems engineering for developing and sustaining a well-designed world. Methods in teaching middle and high school students about engineering and design processes are also covered.

The goals and objectives of the BS degree in Technology, Engineering, and Design Education: Teaching Licensure are:

  • Develop technical skills and an understanding of technical processes
  • Develop the ability to apply knowledge, skill and creativity in solving technical problems
  • Understand and appreciate the historical evolution of technology
  • Understand and assess the impact of current technological developments and trends
  • Demonstrate an ability to teach others about technology
