The College of Applied Studies, in conjunction with the College of Engineering, offers the graduate certificate in engineering education. The graduate certificate in engineering education is designed to:

  1. Provide engineering graduate students with knowledge of contemporary learning theories that can be applied to university-level instruction;
  2. Provide engineering graduate students with knowledge and skills in classroom testing and program evaluation;
  3. Provide engineering graduate students with knowledge of pedagogical skills that can be applied to university-level instruction;
  4. Provide engineering graduate students with the skills to apply knowledge of learning theory, pedagogical theory and measurement theory in an authentic university setting.

This certificate program provides joint mentorship from College of Applied Studies and College of Engineering faculty members. Students who plan to apply for university teaching positions after graduation need to be competitive in a market that demands good teaching as well as good research. The engineering education certificate will give WSU graduates a competitive edge.
