Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology

Option in Technology and Engineering Education (120 units)

Administered by the Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department.

  • Faculty Advisor - Roni Allen
  • CECS Department Office - ECS 540
  • Faculty Advisor's Office - ECS 525
  • Faculty Advisor's Telephone -(562) 985-1523

The Option in Technology and Engineering Education is for students preparing to teach technology and programming courses at the middle or high school level. Completion of these courses meets the subject matter competence requirement for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Industrial and Technology Education (ITE). Students should consult the department's Industrial and Technology Education advisor to plan their program.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade of "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 111 and 113, and PHYS 100A within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade of "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122, PHYS 100A and B within one calendar year.

Single Subject Teaching Credential in Industrial and Technology Education

In addition to meeting the subject matter competence for the Teaching Credential, prospective students are also required to complete 45 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching. Students may begin the professional preparation courses as early as the junior year. With careful planning, it is possible to complete all of the credential program courses, except for student teaching, as an undergraduate. Courses may also be completed as a post-baccalaureate student. Refer to the Single Subject Teacher Education section of this catalog, or the Single Subject Program website (www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject) for a description of the professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures.
