• Technology Education
• B.S. – Technology Education resulting in Teacher Licensure
Ohio Northern University’s program is one of the few Private University Technology Teacher Education programs in the country. The mission of the department is to graduate leaders that pursue life-long learning, possess a high degree of technological literacy, and the ability to implement and manage emerging technologies to benefit the world. The program is CAEP accredited and is housed in up-to-date and well-equipped instructional laboratory areas, including the Robotics Center of Excellence and the Digital Manufacturing and Simulation lab. Our technology education program will turn you into one of the coolest teachers in school as you will be able to design, build, and program robots, 3D print objects, program a Laser to engrave or cut out parts, and to operate a variety of materials and processes equipment! Our program emphasizes hands-on learning in a face-to-face format with small class sizes. Coursework prepares students to be technologically literate and graduate ready to be licensed to teach technology, grades four through 12. Students in the program are highly motivated and expected to be professionally active as they assist professors with research and participate in state and national conferences. Study abroad, intercollegiate athletics, and student groups are significant opportunities undertaken by most students.
