ESED MISSION To prepare doctoral students who will inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists by creating and communicating new knowledge through robust research in education and teaching at the foundational levels of the STEM disciplines.

Degrees

The Engineering and Science Education Department (ESED) offers graduate students in the STEM disciplines either a PhD degree or a graduate certificate. Any student with a foundation degree (BS) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics can apply to the PhD program in Engineering and Science Education. Admitted students pursue a MS level of knowledge in a STEM discipline, coursework that prepare them for research in education, and a dissertation that investigates various aspects of learning and teaching in STEM or how to broaden participation in the STEM disciplines.

Certificate in Engineering and Science Education

  • open to any PhD student in science (e.g., chemistry, physics, geosciences, biology), engineering (e.g., industrial, chemical, mechanical, electrical), or mathematics.
  • requires 11 credit hours of coursework that equips the students to teach or provide programming in higher education settings from two-year community college, four-year colleges or universities, and research universities.
  • The certificate provides an advantage that PhD students in the STEM disciplines at most other universities do not have. The ESED certificate gives Clemson graduates a competitive edge. (Quoted from the ESED Website)
