Engineering/Technology Teacher Education

College of Technology

With this degree option, you will be well prepared to teach engineering technology principles at the middle school and high school levels. You'll learn how to teach your own students the basics of design and communications, construction, power/energy, and transportation technology. Your education will blend practical experiences, technical expertise, and academic rigor into a solid foundation.

You will complete coursework in general education, professional education, and engineering/technology education. One great advantage to the Purdue program is its relationship with Project Lead The Way (PLTW). Our graduates receive a PLTW pre-engineering teaching certificate. With it, you will be qualified to teach PLTW courses as part of Indiana's technology education curriculum.

The Engineering/Technology Teacher Education undergraduate curriculum is based on the Scholar-Practitioner Model, NCATE accreditation standards, Standards for Technological Literacy, Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy, and Indiana Professional Standards Board standards.
