B.S. Technology - Technology Education

Technology Education Licensure

The Bachelor of Science in Technology degree with the Technology Education concentration prepares technology education teachers to be licensed by the state of Ohio.

There is currently a nationwide shortage of qualified Technology Education teachers. Graduates are expected to be agents of change to implement contemporary technology curricula. Kent State University's technology education graduates are qualified to be licensed to teach grades 4-12, although most positions are at the middle and high school level. Graduates teach a wide array of courses including computer-aided design, Engineering by Design, Project Lead the Way, manufacturing, construction, graphic communication, woods technology, home maintenance, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

Study Objective:

The objective of the technology education licensure concentration curriculum is to prepare graduates to be licensed by the state of Ohio to teach Technology Education in grades 4-12.

Program Outcomes:

Technology Education licensure majors will pass Praxis I and the Ohio Educators Assessments (See Ohio Department of Education - Educator Preparation Website) while being enrolled as undergraduates. Graduates will possess appropriate technological skills and pedagogical competencies to be licensed by the Ohio Department of Education to teach technology education in grades 4-12.

"For a long time, I thought I knew I was going to be a teacher. The reason I chose Technology Education is because it is a subject where the teachers can really make a difference for students who struggle in other classes and I love the variety of different teaching methods we get to use that teachers in other classes don't get the opportunity to use."

-Ryan Goobeaux, KSU Technology Education student

"I transferred to Kent State University and I'm glad that I did. The thoughtful and intelligent Technology Education professors taught us that an intricate connectivity exists in the designed world that has resulted in our lives being better, safer, more gratifying and beautiful. This philosophy has not only made me a better teacher in which those same attributes I have instilled in my own students, but it's also provided me a lifestyle that has rendered me a continuous appreciation and realization to utilize our own creative capacity to benefit ourselves and our families."

-Scott Kutz, Kent State Technology Education Graduate and Technology Education Teacher at Westlake High School, Westlake, Ohio
