Technology, Engineering, and Design Education

The Technology, Engineering and Design Education Program provides a technical foundation for a variety of employment opportunities including certification as a teacher of technology education. There is currently a strong demand for technology education teachers throughout North Carolina and the nation.

One goal of technology education is to generate a general appreciation and understanding of modern technology. The program focuses on many of the technology skills required by our society as it faces increasing competition in a global economy.

The content of the Technology, Engineering and Design Education Program is organized around content including buildings and structures; the organization of labor, tools and materials; the transportation of people and products from place to place; and the transmission and reception of ideas.

Graduate degrees at the Master's and Doctoral levels in Technology Education are also offered.
