Program Description

Our master’s program is designed for professionals who wish to develop their instructional competencies in fields related to technology, engineering and design education as well as those who wish to be supervisors and administrators of technology education programs. We offer a Master of Education in Technology Education. The Master of Education is a Distance Education Program that can be taken totally online. It requires 30-semester hour credits without a thesis and is most appropriate for individuals seeking advanced licensure with additional hours.

Upon completion, graduates will have the necessary background to then complete their doctoral.

Admission Requirements

Since test scores and grade point averages are not perfect measures of student abilities, a comprehensive evaluation form is used to determine eligibility. Items considered on the evaluation form are:

  • 3.0 GPA or above on previous graduate work
  • High ratings from the three reference letters
  • An outline of career goals
  • Applicant’s appropriateness of education and experience for the program

Technology Education faculty members will review the materials, make recommendation on admission and note if they would be willing to chair applicant’s advisory committee. Once faculty reviews are completed, they meet to determine admission or to hold an interview with the applicant before a final admission decision is made.

Please note: If you are currently enrolled in a master’s degree program in our College of Education and are interested in pursuing a Ph.D., you must formally apply to the program through the Graduate School. Students who continue directly from our NC State Master’s program into the Ph.D. (without a break in enrollment) may transfer all 36 credit hours.

Course of Study

The master’s program can be completed within two years. Part-time students usually complete the program within three to four years.
