The Teacher Engineering Education Program (TEEP) Certificate Program empowers teachers to bring hands-on engineering to their students.
Contact the CEEO
The Teacher Engineering Education Program (TEEP) Certificate Program graduate courses are designed to build knowledge in engineering and expertise in teaching engineering. Participants enroll as learners in four graduate-level courses that are rigorous and engaging. Each course is worth four graduate credit hours, giving participants a total of 16 credit hours upon completion.
The TEEP program is modeled after Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach in-person, hands-on workshops and courses. The courses aren't filled with lectures and multiple choice but with hands-on challenges, work with your own students, and discussions. For content courses, participants are shipped a kit of materials right to their door, and upload pictures and video of their engineering design solutions in an easy-to-use website. Pedagogy courses task participants with interviewing students, trying activities in their classrooms, and discussing readings. Weekly assignments are designed to work with busy schedules.
In addition to the standard applications requirements for certificate students, we ask that you please respond to the following:
Essay 1: Please describe your teaching philosophy (400-800 words)
Essay 2: Please describe an episode of a single student (or group of students) learning that you found particularly powerful (400-800 words)
Official Test Scores
Test scores from standardized tests such as the Graduate GMAT or GRE are not required. Tufts CEEO believes that the quality of the applicant's academic record, work experience and letters of recommendation are the best indicators of potential for success in the program. If you have previously taken the GRE and GMAT and would like to submit your scores as part of your application, the Tufts University code number is 3901.
