Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology


Option in Technology and Engineering Education (code ET__BS15) (120 units)


Administered by the Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department.
Faculty Advisor - Barbara Mack
CECS Department Office - ECS 540
Faculty Advisor’s Office - ECS 524
Faculty Advisor’s Telephone -(562) 985-1595

The Technology and Engineering Education Option is for students preparing to teach technology and programming courses at the middle or high school level. Thirty units of postbaccalaureate coursework are also required for the Clear Single Subject Teaching Credential in Technology Education. See the Single Subject Teacher Education Program in the Graduate School of Education (ED1-54) for more specific information about courses and other requirements. This option is not accredited.

Students earning this degree are well prepared to take the ITE and other California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). 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 Credential Program website (www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject) for a description of the professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures. Prospective students should consult the department’s Industrial and Technology Education Advisor early to plan their program.

The Industrial and Technology Education Subject Matter Program is being revised to meet new state standards. When the revised program has been approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the new course requirements will be in effect and supersede current requirements.

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.
