Major Curriculum

The Technology and Engineering Education program requirements are part of the program leading to secondary education licensure (grades 6-12).

The hours are divided into four sections: General Education, Technology and Engineering Education Core, Professional Education, and Electives. To learn more about each course, the prerequisites and any additional degree requirements, we suggest going to the Illinois State University catalog. The following information is for those students who are subject to the 2016-2017 catalog.
