Engineering Education Minor

The Engineering Education Minor not only provides students with field experience through the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) Student Teacher Mentorship Program (STOMP), but also provides an educational foundation that will help them in their classroom visits, and influence their work.

Engineering students are encouraged to obtain an Engineering Education minor if they have:

  • a passion for K-12 education, but don't necessarily want to pursue a career in the field;
  • a potential desire to go into the education field post-graduation, but want to explore the possibility first;
  • determined to become an educator post-graduation, and the minor experience will adequately prepare then in pursuing an MAT;
  • a need to be active in citizenship and public service pre- and post-graduation.

Students are eligible for the minor if they take 5 credits, and participate in one field experience activity in the form of STOMP or an equivalent Education field course. The 5 required credits are divided among the 3 categories of Build, Apply, and Integrate, as identified in table below.

If you are a Tufts Engineering student interested in the minor, please contact Merredith Portsmore, CEEO Director, with questions.
