NCSU Accepting Applications for Fall 2018 PhD in Learning and Teaching

March 29, 2018

North Carolina State University is accepting applications for Fall 2018 PhD in Learning and Teaching in STEM Program Area of Study: Engineering and Technology Education through December 1, 2017.

We Anticipate up to 3 (three) TA positions for Fall 2018 (teaching graphics, CAD, materials and processing, electronics, robotics, etc)

This PhD program within the Department of STEM Education, program area of Technology, Engineering and Design Education (K-12), is for students who wish to become leaders through scholarly pursuits in engineering and technology learning, teaching, and practice. In addition to the essential habits of mind and practice unique to engineering and technology, the program will also promote 21st Century and “Technology” skills that are necessary for influencing public policy, educational reform, and promoting technological literacy. Engineering education is a rapidly emerging field not only in the post-secondary arena, but in K-12 settings as well. The Next Generation Science Standards and the National Standards for Technological Literacy include engineering as an essential learning focus. This degree within the College of Education combines current engineering and technology education faculty from both the College of Engineering and College of Education where fruitful partnerships currently exist. Through these partnerships, this program area of study will offer a unique and innovative concentration that would have specializations in areas: K-12 outreach education, post-secondary teacher education and instruction, engineering education research, and community college service. An inherently cross-disciplinary program, graduates are prepared for successful positions across engineering education and technology education enterprises: engineering faculty positions in all types of universities; educational research; university assessment staff; engineering policy; industry training management; and K-12 district or local area specialists.
