The Engineering Science Teacher Education concentration provides students with the engineering and teaching experience to enter junior and senior high school classrooms and laboratories to teach engineering design principles and concepts in an exciting technology education classroom.

Detailed information about the Center for Educator Preparation (CEP) and licensure requirements can be found in the Education Building, Room 111.

Effective Fall 2017

To qualify for graduation, Engineering Science majors must achieve a minimum 2.000 grade point average at CSU in all courses in engineering, mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and chemistry as well as courses taken as technical electives.

Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1-2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s four-year program.

2

Students who do not take the MECH sequence in the freshman year may need to get a registration override from the Department of Mechanical Engineering to register for this course.

3

Students will need to obtain a registration override from the appropriate department to take this course.

4

If planning to take MECH 486A and MECH 486B in the senior year, take MECH 301 and MECH 331; otherwise select courses with advisor’s approval.

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:
TO DECLARE MAJOR: Engineering is a controlled major:  students are admitted into the major only if they meet established academic standards.  Please see competitive major requirements or the advisor in the Department for more information.
TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:   The curriculum for this major assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus.  To qualify for graduation, engineering science majors must achieve a minimum 2.000 grade point average at Colorado State in all courses in engineering, mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and chemistry as well as courses taken as technical electives.  Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1‐2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s five‐year program.
