Bachelor of Science

Technology, Engineering, and Design Education


Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education (STEM Ed)

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.

Program Description

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.

During the course of this undergraduate program students will:

  • 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

Non-Licensure Graphics Communications Option

Through the study of technical graphics language and design processes, students learn how to think in the language of graphics to effectively communicate ideas and solve technical problems. They actively visualize, design, model, simulate, analyze, and document solutions in technical graphics studies courses and explore the role graphics play in all areas of engineering.

During the course of this undergraduate program students will:

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