College of Engineering

Department of Engineering Education

This degree is the culmination of a multi-year initiative to refocus the department and develop a new emphasis in engineering education. This new focus was supported by a ten million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to establish the National Center for Engineering and Technology Education at Utah State. Because the new emphasis in engineering education within the department is sufficiently different than the technology education program, a new doctoral degree with a very different set of requirements is warranted.

This program will produce graduates who:

  1. Are familiar with the theory and practice of engineering education and are adept at these aspects within their specific area of engineering specialization.
  2. Have the ability to conduct research in engineering education in areas such as engineering epistemologies, engineering learning mechanisms, engineering learning systems, engineering diversity and inclusiveness, and engineering assessment.
  3. Have the ability to develop/implement/assess engineering curricula at both the high school and university levels.
