Technical Education

Bachelor of Science

Ferris State University

Rapid technological changes have generated strong demand for technical teachers in Michigan. Graduates can expect excellent career opportunities in industry, secondary and vocational education.

Technical skills and the training to teach them to others are a valuable combination in education today. If you relate well to others and enjoy working with your hands and mind, you are well suited for a worthwhile and rewarding career in technical education.

The Ferris State University technical education program provides a balanced mix of courses in three major areas: professional education, field experience and liberal arts education. About a third of the courses required for graduation will be in the major's chosen field.

Technical education students also must complete occupational work experience. A field experience in which students work with young people in public schools is required, along with a full-time directed teaching assignment in a vocational/technical program at an area vocational center or high school.
