Our community of practice brings together graduate students and faculty from bioengineering, chemistry, civil engineering, electrical engineering, environmental engineering and science, materials science and engineering, mathematics, mechanical engineering, and physics to engage in cutting-edge research in epistemologies, diversity and inclusiveness, policy, and learning mechanisms and systems. Our community includes undergraduate researchers, post-doctoral scholars, and visiting researchers in our academic endeavors.

Ph.D. Program

The Department of Engineering and Science Education is the only department in the country that includes both engineering education and science education in a College of Science/Engineering. This establishes the Ph.D. degree at Clemson University as a nationally unique graduate program; faculty members are experts in several areas of science and engineering education and have active research programs in these fields. Students who enroll in this program will be expected to be content experts in a STEM discipline with at least a Master's degree in their subject area of expertise.
