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.”

The Engineering/Technology Teacher Education (ETTE) Program, founded in 1908, was the first teacher education program established on Purdue campus. For over a century the ETTE program has adapted to meet the needs of technology teacher education. The ETTE Program is housed in the Purdue Polytechnic, in conjunction with the College of Education, to prepare secondary engineering/technology education teachers for America’s 21st century schools. Purdue’s ETTE program was named as the nation’s outstanding Engineering and Technology Teacher Education Program by the Association for Career and Technical Education five times. In 2018, ETTE faculty were awarded the Gerhard Salinger Award For Enhancing I-STEM Education Through Technological/Engineering Design-Based Instruction. The ETTE faculty also lead a Design and Innovation minor for Purdue Polytechnic.
The ETTE faculty, Drs. Asunda, Bartholomew, Kelley, Mentzer and Strimel have received 10 grants in K-12 STEM education, worth nearly $10 million. They have collectively published over 61 refereed articles, won 10 research and scholarship awards, and have been honored 15 times for excellence in teaching/service. ETTE faculty research includes: engineering design, integrated STEM education, and design assessment. At the graduate level, there are multiple graduate research and teaching assistantships available.
