Indiana State University


The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in technology and engineering education for students who wish to obtain licensure to teach in middle school, junior high, and high school.

The Technology and Engineering Education Program prepares persons to teach in the areas of pre-engineering, communications, construction, manufacturing, biotechnology, and transportation/power and energy. The content is derived extensively from technology and the impact that technology makes on society and the environment.

Coursework includes a core of technology courses—plus electives selected in consultation with an advisor. In addition, students complete a sequence of professional courses offered by the Bayh College of Education and the College of Technology to prepare for teaching.

Indiana State's Technology and Engineering Education Program is distinctive in its emphasis on blending classroom learning with practical experience and extracurricular activities that result in exciting and challenging study.

  • Students benefit from one-on-one guidance from dedicated faculty mentors. Most hold doctoral degrees, have experience teaching technology and engineering education in the public schools, and engage in research and scholarly publication.
  • Coursework is centered in the University's John T. Myers Technology Center, which has more than 20 state-of-the-art laboratories and well-equipped classrooms.
  • Students gain teaching skills through classroom and field experiences in the Bayh College of Education and the College of Technology—and through their required student teaching experience.
  • A number of activities and organizations are available that enable students to interact with other students and professionals in the industry. These include chapters of the Technology Education Collegiate Association (TECA) and Epsilon Pi Tau (the international honorary for professions in technology).
  • Eligible students may participate in the University's Honors Program and study abroad opportunities—which range from summer programs to a single semester or a full academic year in over 56 countries.
