The University of St. Thomas' Schools of Engineering and Education provide a graduate certificate in Engineering Education. The graduate certificate is designed for in-service P-12 educators who want hands-on experience in engineering. The graduate certificate program is a rigorous introduction to engineering content, with an emphasis placed on how to apply the material in P-12 classrooms. The graduate courses are taught in the UST School of Engineering facilities by faculty with a wide range of engineering and education experience. The certificate program consists of four classes:
EGED 530 Fundamentals of Engineering (3 credits)
EGED 531 Engineering Design (3 credits)
TEGR 528 Engineering in the P-12 Classroom (3 credits)
and an Engineering Elective (3 credits)
TOTAL: 12 credits
Classes are offered throughout the year in formats including summer intensives, weekend classes, and courses with weekly meetings throughout the semester. We look forward to working with you to create a course plan that fits both your interests and your schedule. The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Education can be rolled into the Master's of Arts Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. For more information see Curriculum and Instruction.
