The Technology and Engineering Education program is offered through the Department of Applied Technology at Fort Hays State University. The secondary technology education program is a 130 credit hour, consisting of a Bachelor of Science in Technology Studies with a concentration in Technology and Engineering Education. The program of study consists of a balanced combination of courses in general education, broad-based technology and engineering literacy, industrial technology, and secondary education. The technical coursework in the program focuses on applied areas of drafting/design/CAD, wood/construction technology, metals/manufacturing technology, plastics technology, robotics, and STEM. Field-based professional educator experiences are integrated throughout the program including a semester-long student teaching experience at the end of the program of study. The program is housed in the new Center for Applied Technology, with 58,000 square feet, opened in fall 2017 as the home of the Industrial Technology and Technology & Engineering Education programs.

• BS – Secondary Education with Technology Education endorsement
In collaboration with K-State’s College of Education, this technology education degree option is designed to serve individuals interested in instructing technology at the high school level. 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.
The secondary education pedagogy is taught through video conferencing by professors from the College of Education. Students get the opportunity to create and implement technology education lessons while teaching at a local high school for one semester. An official licensure will be earned upon completion of the bachelor’s degree and passing of the state Praxis test.

The undergraduate degree in Technology & Engineering Education (T&EE) prepares students to be licensed teachers of industrial technology, technology education and pre-engineering at the middle and high school level (grades 6-12). The program is housed in the Kansas Technology Center’s – Center of Applied STEM Education, which has a state of the art laboratory remodeled in 2018, providing the high-tech space to deliver Technology and Engineering Education courses. The program focuses on hands-on, activity-based classes engaging students in meaningful educational experiences in areas of communications; power, energy & transportation, materials and processes, construction, manufacturing, design, robotics, 3D prototyping and more. Students can also participate in local, regional and national activities through the Technology & Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA). PSU’s T&EE program is recognized as one of the leading Technology and Engineering Education programs in the US, with near 100% placement of graduates over the last 10 years. The PSU T&EE program has extensive equipment/facilities in the lab, and throughout the Kansas Technology Center. Faculty have received national recognition and received numerous awards.
