The Technology Education(Technology and Design Education) program prepares teachers of technology education for grades K-12 with a Michigan Department of Education K-12 Provisional Certificate qualifying the prospective teacher in areas such as computer-aided design, robotics, manufacturing and other technology education and industrial technology subjects. A 20-24 credit teachable minor is also required. A vocational minor is encouraged for those students who have courses and work experience in a specific occupation. Graduates may also qualify for a vocational endorsement (Interim Occupational Certificate) by completing 6 hours of course work and have two years of occupational experience in employment related to the area of study. Options for cooperative work experience are available to students as partial credit toward that occupational requirement. This major must be completed in conjunction with the technology education curriculum. Successful completion of this course of studies, in the context of other program requirements, qualifies the student for recommendation for certification for the Michigan Department of Education Secondary Provisional Certificate
endorsed in technology and design, certification code TX. The Michigan Teacher Test for Certification (MTTC) covering this field is #88 “Technology Education and Design Education.”
