Master of Science, Technology and Engineering Education

Program Rationale:

The Master of Science in Technology and Engineering Education is designed to develop the professional competencies of technology and engineering educators so that they may successfully progress in their profession. The program is a balance of liberal arts, research, and professional and technology education courses leading to a Master of Science in Technology and Engineering Education degree. A minimum of 30 credits of study in approved graduate courses is required. The program is designed for flexibility in meeting the needs of the individual students. Programs of study are individualized through electives and independent study. The primary purpose of the program is to develop the professional competencies of technology education instructors so that they may successfully progress in their chosen field.

 

Program Learning Outcomes:

Technology and Engineering Education graduate students will be expected to:

• identify and document an area of technical expertise;

• develop technical research skills;

• demonstrate areas of professional competencies by taking two of three professional education courses from a recommended list;

• exhibit an acceptable degree of professional competencies and proficiency essential for meeting educational and social challenges;

• update their technical competencies and understandings in their major area;

• analyze and evaluate recent issues in their field, such as curriculum innovations and strategies for program improvement and/or implementation;

• explain how the relationship between their field and the academic disciplines impacts the development of their students;

• identify and research problems in education and use the results for professional improvement; and

• further their interest in and potential for educational leadership or other service in or outside their major area.

 

Admission Requirements:

The application for admission to graduate study requires:

A minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.70 on a 4.00 point scale (where A is 4.00), or its equivalent, and good standing (3.00 GPA) in all post-baccalaureate course work is required.  When applicable, evidence of successful completion of a master’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum 3.00 GPA, on a four point scale (where A = 4.00), will make the student eligible for admission to the School of Graduate Studies and the undergraduate GPA will not be counted.
