Program description

The purpose of the B.S.Ed. in Secondary Education and Teaching with a concentration in engineering education is to prepare students to serve as initially licensed teachers in grades 6-12, as well as to serve as educators and leaders in schools and community-based settings. The program will focus on providing students with a solid foundation in secondary education, engineering, mathematics and sciences to meet the requirements for licensure. Through the core education curriculum, students will become knowledgeable about professional roles and workplace responsibilities while learning basic abilities in the planning and implementation of engineering lessons for students in grades 6-12. The core curriculum instills fundamental knowledge and skills, with opportunities for observation and application in a variety of engineering settings. Through the core engineering, science and mathematics curriculum, students will develop the content knowledge and skills of those fields in order to deliver relevant and rigorous lessons in engineering and integration of other content areas with engineering.


Graduates will be prepared to work in public and private middle and high schools across Virginia, with particular focus in urban and other high-need areas. Graduates will be capable of working with diverse learners and adapting instructional programs based on the needs of their students and clients. Successful completion of the program will result in licensure in secondary engineering education (6-12).

Career opportunities

Graduates typically work in public or private school systems, child care centers, and youth service organizations. Teaching in public schools requires licensure. Be sure to explore the certification requirements in the state you want to teach in as they can differ across states. Graduates can also find work with programs such as Richmond Teacher Residency, Americorps, PeaceCorps, Fulbright Student Program, City Year, America Reads or The Literacy Lab.
