The Technology, Engineering and Design Education (TED) concentration focuses on the preparation of technology, engineering and design education in grades 6-12. TED instructors teach a variety of courses in these grades from technological design and game art and design to technological systems and robotics. Students in the TED concentration will learn how to teach young people about technology and its importance and its effects upon society, the economy and the environment. Students in the TED concentration will also develop the skills necessary to teach students about design and engineering, biotechnology, communications, energy, power and transportation, construction and manufacturing technologies.
Because of the extensive training in these areas, individuals that choose not to teach after graduation have found lucrative and successful careers in all types of engineering and technical fields.
