The Technology and Engineering Education program prepares students to teach at the secondary level. Most students secure teaching positions before graduation. Our overall job placement rate is nearly 100 percent.
The focus of technology and engineering education at the P-12 levels is not to prepare future engineering majors/students, but to provide an education for all students.
At the P-12 grade levels, students develop technological and engineering literacy— regardless of career aspirations—through hands-on, contextual applications of technological and engineering concepts. P-12 students use a hands-on approach to solve technological problems using problem solving and creativity, while working under constraints, which involves the use of optimization and predictive analysis.
At the P-5 grade levels, technology and engineering concepts are integrated into existing coursework such as reading, mathematics, science, and social studies. Typical courses students would take at the 6-12 grade levels in a technology and engineering education program would consist of:
