The technology and engineering education program prepares students to teach technology-based courses at the middle school and high school levels. In this specially designed program, students be exposed to the latest technology and learn about educational methods. Students take technology courses in communication, construction, manufacturing, and transportation and gain real-world experience working with materials, processes, energy systems, robots, and computers. They also learn about the principles of teaching and classroom strategies.
The Master of Arts in Career and Technical Education (CTE), offered by the Department of Technology, is 100 percent online. This degree program is a good choice for those with a bachelor’s degree who are interested in Career and Technical Education (formerly known as Vocational Education). The degree is 30 credit hours, and no thesis is required. Courses are offered year round.
Ball State’s long-established Master of Arts degree in Technology Education that was offered face-to-face for decades has been offered 100 percent online since 2002. The program is convenient, flexible, and affordable for current technology education teachers who want to take a single graduate course or earn a degree without leaving their homes. The mission of the Master of Arts in Technology Education program is “to prepare graduates who possess theoretical and practical understanding of technological content, pedagogy, and research to effectively implement and improve Technology Education.”

Purdue University’s Engineering/Technology Teacher Education program is the nation’s preeminent engineering and technology teacher education program. In 2011, the program was awarded the “Nationally Recognized” designation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Purdue University was the only Land-Grant University to receive this designation and one of only 12 other colleges/universities that hold that prestigious NCATE title. The program has been awarded the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) “Outstanding Engineering and Technology Teacher Education Program” in 2009, 2008, 2007, and 2006. Additionally, Purdue’s ETTE program is the national leader for Project Lead The Way (PLTW) teacher education certification. Successful ETTE graduates receive up to four PLTW certifications. There are multiple, Master’s and Ph.D. program research and teaching assistantships available through College of Technology and NSF funded assistantships. All Purdue ETTE faculty hold Ph.D. degrees and guide funded research projects on the T and E in STEM education and promote scholarship through peer-reviewed publications. Graduate students co-author published research with ETTE faculty.
