Student Learning Outcomes for Secondary Education:

Students will be able to:

  • identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

A Secondary Education major in Physics is offered in conjunction with the Education Department and leads to Pennsylvania teacher certification at the secondary level.

Physics Education majors may substitute PHY 201  for one of their Natural and Physical Science Core courses. Engineering and Physics students must earn a C- or better in ALL prerequisite Engineering and Physics courses to continue in the major. The required math courses will satisfy the requirement of two math courses for Education certification.
