– Socially Responsible Engineering & Technology Program of Study

Socially Responsible Engineering & Technology Program of Study Pilot Program

The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) has partnered with the New Jersey Department of Education to create a model Program of Study in Engineering & Technology for the high school level.

Four courses (for grades 9-11) have been developed by our state’s top STEM educators, business leaders and industry professionals.

The curriculum is project-based, standards-driven and connects cutting edge design challenges with career preparation and 21st Century Skill development. Additionally, the curriculum is correlated with Technology Student Association (TSA) competitive events and activities.

High school students enrolled in this Program of Study will have the opportunity to graduate with college credit that can be applied toward several STEM-related degree programs at county colleges and/or The College of New Jersey.

We are currently accepting applications from districts who would be interested in piloting the Program of Study. If selected, up to four teachers from your school will receive stipends to attend a Summer Training Institute at TCNJ. Your school will also receive a grant for materials, ongoing professional development and access to online resources and tools.
