The Technology and Engineering Education Option is for students preparing to teach technology and programming courses at the middle or high school level. This Option has been approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing as a subject matter preparation program for students who plan to teach on the Industrial and Technology (ITE) credential.

To earn a teaching credential in Industrial and Technology Education, students must also complete a Single Subject Program sequence of professional preparation courses, including student teaching. CSU Long Beach does not currently offer a Single Subject Credential Program in Industrial and Technology Education, but post-baccalaureate ITE programs are offered at nearby universities. For information about earning a Single Subject teaching credential, see an advisor in the Teacher Preparation Advising Center (Ed1-67) in the College of Education. For information about the Technology and Engineering Option, students should consult the department’s Industrial and Technology Education advisor.

CHE Department Office - EN2 101

The Environmental Technology Option program is to provide career educational opportunities to students whose technological interests and aptitudes are applications-oriented. The goal is to produce occupational-ready college graduates with practical skills and potential for growth to meet defined technical manpower needs, primarily for California's environmental industry. To achieve these goals, emphasis is placed on meeting students’ needs through lecture and laboratory teaching, through the co-op program with local industry, and through other relevant learning experiences.

In addition to acquiring technical knowledge and skills, graduates will be able to communicate well. They will be prepared not only for immediate employment but for continuing development as citizens and responsible human beings as well. This will be accomplished by requiring appropriate courses in technical fields, communications, and in general education courses. Furthermore the ethical considerations of environmental issues will have a major role throughout the curriculum. Finally, every effort is made to help the students in proper job placement upon graduation. This option is not accredited.
