What is STEM Education
STEM Education is an innovative program that encourages undergraduate science, math, and engineering students to explore career opportunities in secondary education. Through the STEM Education program students will gain valuable hands-on teaching experience, earn a four year degree in the field of mathematics, science, or engineering as well as complete the requirements to earn their teaching license. Students who have graduated through the STEM Education program have the ability to either begin teaching in their selected field, pursue an advanced degree, or begin working in their selected fields. The STEM Education Program is modeled after the highly successful UTeach program from the University of Texas, Austin.
Through the collaborative partnership of the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and surrounding partner schools, UTC's STEM Education program offers a high-quality teacher education that will increase the number and diversity of competent math, science, and computer science students entering the teaching field and assuming positions of educational leadership in their fields.
