This option is for students preparing to teach technology and programming courses at the middle or high school level. It has been approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing as a subject matter preparation program for students who plan to teach on the Industrial and Technology (ITE) credential.

To earn a teaching credential in Industrial and Technology Education, students must also complete a Single Subject Program sequence of professional preparation courses, including student teaching. For information about earning a Single Subject teaching credential, see an advisor in the Teacher Preparation Advising Center (Ed1-67) in the College of Education. For information about the Technology and Engineering Option, students should consult the department's Industrial and Technology Education advisor.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 111 & 113, and PHYS 100A within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122 and PHYS 100A & B within one calendar year.
