UST Students Teach Engineering Education
The University of St. Thomas’ Schools of Engineering and Education offer Engineering Education through the Center for Engineering Education (CEE). The award winning experienced engineering and education professors who teach in the program adhere to the philosophy that the engineering component of integrated STEM is built on cutting edge research. Quality integrated STEM education provides a meaningful connection for students while engaging learners in hands-on rigorous exploration of content. The Center offers an engineering minor and a graduate certificate in engineering Education. The classes may be taken as an individual course, as part of the minor/graduate certificate and/or part of the Master's in Curriculum and Instruction. A printable flyer is available 2016 CEE.
