Teach the next generation of technology trailblazers

Develop a new generation of technology trailblazers when you earn a bachelor’s degree in secondary education with a technology education endorsement at Kansas State Polytechnic.

In collaboration with K-State’s College of Education, this technology education degree option is designed to serve individuals interested in teaching technology at the high school level. Currently, there is a nationwide initiative to prepare more people to become STEM, or science, technology, engineering and math, educators, and this degree helps you make a contribution to that need.

Technology Education

A degree that is in-demand

In the past several years, national initiatives and jobs reports have outlined the necessity for more STEM education. K-State’s College of Education is a partner in the 100Kin10 network, which was created in 2011 after President Barack Obama issued a call to add 100,000 STEM teachers across the country over the next 10 years. The group is comprised of more than 280 academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies and government agencies in the United States that have committed to help lead the charge.

Looking to the future

Technology touches many aspects of our everyday life, from communication methods to building and manufacturing to medicine and more. Because of technology’s relevance and continued advancement, the pressing need to produce more high school graduates with advanced technology skills cannot be overstated.

Hands-on education

Enrolled students study a combination of technology content focused in mechanical, electronic and computer systems curriculum. Many of the courses – which cover topics such as basic electronics, computing principles, hardware and software fundamentals, machine design and manufacturing methods – include lab time and project-based assignments, so students have a better understanding of the material and can use hands-on demonstrations in their own classrooms.

“High school students with an interest in teaching or who excel in engineering technology classes such as manufacturing, construction, energy, power and technical design should consider enrolling. Also, transfer students and current teachers who want to change their endorsement are encouraged to apply.”
