Technology Education prepares students to teach in elementary, middle level and secondary school systems. A student completing this major receives Department of Public Instruction certification to teach technology education (220 license). The strength of the program is in the collaboration between professional education course requirements and technology course requirements. Technology education majors learn hands-on approaches to illustrate the effects of technology on modern life.
