Program Description
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.
