About
A degree in technology and engineering education prepares students to become qualified instructors who can teach the necessary skills required in our changing world. The ever-increasing rate of technological development and the impacts of globalization have created a demand for individuals who are technologically literate, innovative and capable of working in teams. The world is looking toward specialized educators to meet this demand. Students have the option to emphasize their studies in Technology and Engineering Education or Trade and Technical Education. A Technology and Engineering Education emphasis is designed to prepare students for careers in teaching at the middle school and high school levels. The courses in this major consist of communication, manufacturing, energy, power and transportation classes. A Trade and Technical Education emphasis is designed to prepare students for teaching Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses at the high school and post-high school levels. The courses in this major consist of classes within a declared expertise of building trades, automotive technology, electricity and electronics, computer-aided drafting, nursing or culinary arts. Students are exposed to extensive practical classroom experience through role-playing, video-laboratory activities, clinical experiences and student teaching. Students choosing this major must also be admitted to the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) administered by the College of Human Services.
