CSM Hosts Information Session for Students Who Want to Pursue a Degree in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering
The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) is hosting an informational session Sept. 13 for prospective students who are considering a four-year degree in electrical or mechanical engineering.
The Pre-Engineering Program is part of CSM’s Southern Maryland Engineering Partnership (SMD-E) with the Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC-AD) and the University of Maryland at College Park. The program will be led by Dr. David Barrett, who will explain how students can complete a four-year engineering degree in Southern Maryland by completing their first two years of college at CSM and then transferring to the University of Maryland A. James Clark School of Engineering located at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center to complete their final two years of studies.
The Pre-Engineering Program Informational Session will be streamed live starting at 1:30 p.m. at the CSM La Plata Campus, BI Building 009, located at 8730 Mitchell Road; the CSM Leonardtown Campus, Room A208, located at 22950 Hollywood Road; and the CSM Prince Frederick Campus, PFA 108, located at 115 J.W. Williams Road.
For more information about the CSM Engineering Program, visit http://stem.csmd.edu/. For additional information about the Pre- Engineering Program Informational Session, call Pre- Engineering Coordinator Jehnell Linkins at 301-934-7747.

Towson UTeach, Towson University’s program to prepare future secondary school mathematics and science teachers, is pleased to announce the availability of Kahlert Foundation Scholarships ($1,000 per year for up to four years) to be awarded to incoming freshmen who enroll at the university in Fall 2019 and plan to pursue a career in secondary school mathematics or science teaching.
The scholarship application deadline is December 1, 2018.
Students who complete the Towson UTeach Program earn a bachelor’s degree in their chosen content area (mathematics, biology, chemistry, earth-space science, or physics) along with the necessary education coursework for secondary school (grades 7-12) teaching certification in Maryland. Towson UTeach incorporates several novel approaches to teacher preparation:
1) early and frequent field placements in local public schools starting in the freshmen year;
2) education courses focused on and dedicated to the pedagogy of mathematics and science; and
3) master teachers, former exemplary public school teachers, who serve as coaches throughout the students’ four years.
