What is Technology Education?
What Do I Study?
Students studying Technology Education will embark in a course sequence that includes hands-on courses deeply embedded in engineering design in addition to the core requirements of the college. All students studying education will participate in student teaching experiences. While every program has their own courses you will learn how to teach students how to think critically. Specific content and skills that may be taught under a Technology Education endorsement include:
Check out TCNJ's suggested course sequence.
Check out NJIT's undergraduate program.

Talk to a Current Undergraduate Student!
Undergraduate members of the STEM Educators Society (SES) at The College of New Jersey are willing speak with individual students or travel to your school to speak with groups of students interested in exploring a career in teaching Technology Education.
Teachers, school administrators, and undergraduate students from other schools or programs, can contact the society by emailing Halfacm1@tcnj.edu.
If you are currently enrolled in school that does not offer a Technology Education degree but you are interested in teaching technology, you may consider transferring to a school that does. Many courses will transfer between institutions easily. If you are interested in transferring, begin by contacting the transfer counselor or program coordinator of the institution you are considering attending. A list of institutions in your area can be found on the undergraduate programs page. They will help you determine your path to transferring as well as which classes will transfer into your desired program and what remaining classes you will need.
The NJ Transfer website may be especially helpful to those that are considering transfer to and from New Jersey institutions.
Sometimes, students may find that the admissions requirements for transfer students are a bit more relaxed than those for incoming freshmen. A plan for a current high school student may be to begin their studies at one of the county colleges in New Jersey then plan to transfer to an institution that offers a Technology Education program.
Be sure to not wait too long if you are considering transferring, as most institutions require that you complete at least 30 credits at that institution for graduation.
If you have any questions about transferring please contact our current president at firstname.lastname@example.org.
