Putting the “E” in Secondary School STEM Education
The GE+ CU Teach Engineering concentration is uniquely designed to prepare graduates to earn secondary science or math teacher licensure, providing a flexible and multi-faceted professional engineering practice and teaching career pathway. The GE+ CU Teach Engineering program integrates design-focused engineering curriculum, extensive science or math content, education pedagogy courses, and student teaching to create qualified STEM educators that develop and hone the scientific, mathematical, engineering and technological literacy of grades 7-12 students.
The GE+ CU Teach Engineering concentration requires completion of a science (physics, chemistry or biology) or math focus, education pedagogy courses, and a ninth semester of in-depth student teaching – extending the 128 credit hour General Engineering Plus degree to nine semesters.
