Program Description
The Technology Education Program is a teacher education program within the College of Education and the Department of Secondary Education that produces Technology Education Teachers. These educators will be able to teach Technology Education courses at 6-12 grade levels in either high schools or middle schools. In the State of Florida, Technology Education falls under the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) cluster within Workforce Education through the Florida Department of Education. The FAMU Technology Education curriculum not only reflects the pedagogical and professional aspects all teachers must possess, but the technological aspects as well. These include rigorous instruction in technological areas such as Bio and Medical Technologies, Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies, Electronics, Energy and Power, Information Technologies and Transportation. Technology Education Programs in the middle and high schools across the country are sorely underrepresented in terms teachers and students of diverse cultures both male and female. The FAMU Technology Education Program is committed to being “an agent of change” in this regard.
