No work or other courses during final student teaching semester.

A degree in Technology and Engineering Education prepares students to become qualified instructors who can teach the necessary skills required in our changing world. The ever-increasing rate of technological development and the impacts of globalization have created a demand for individuals who are technologically literate, innovative and capable of working in teams. The world is looking toward specialized educators to meet this demand.

Students have the option to emphasize their studies in Technology and Engineering Education or Skilled and Technical Sciences Education.

A Technology and Engineering Education emphasis is designed to prepare students for careers in teaching at the middle school and high school levels. The courses in this major consist of communication, manufacturing, energy, power and transportation classes.

Students are exposed to extensive practical classroom experience through role-playing, video-laboratory activities, clinical experiences and student teaching.

Students choosing this major must also be admitted to the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) administered by the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services. For admission to STEP, students must have an overall GPA of 3.0, have earned a grade of C+ or better in ENGL 1010  or ENGL 2010 , have earned a grade of C or better in at least three general education breadth courses, and have completed a background check.

Please note that all core classes must be passed with a grade of C or better. This includes TEE, TEAL, and SPED courses (BIOL, CHEM and MATH courses do not apply). STEP courses must also be passed with a grade of C or better. An overall GPA of 3.0 is required for graduation.

A Skilled and Technical Sciences Education emphasis is designed to prepare students for teaching Career and Technical Education (CTE) designated courses at the high school and post-high school levels. The courses in this major consist of classes within a declared expertise of building trades, automotive technology, electricity and electronics, computer-aided drafting, nursing or culinary arts.

Advising: Appointments can be made at caas.usu.edu/advising or by calling (435) 797-2282.
