Start on a career that combines your love of technology and education by becoming a technology and engineering education teacher.
Learn how to be the one who provides training to students in a variety of subjects, including auto repair, manufacturing, construction, agriculture and more.
Become a Technology Educator
As a technology educator, you’ll develop age-appropriate lesson plans, instruct students in a particular area of study, demonstrate how to use relevant equipment and tools, supervise and evaluate students’ use of such equipment, discuss progress with students (and their parents if teaching in middle or high school) and to enforce classroom rules and safety procedures.
Technology Education Teachers Are in High Demand
School districts across Wisconsin need licensed technology educators to teach in their middle and high schools.
The other types of jobs someone with this degree could get include community college technology teacher, trade school instructor, carpentry instructor or technology instruction coordinator.
Finish at UW-Platteville
Transfer to UW-Platteville, where you’ll study professional education and technology (metals, woods, drafting, construction, photography and more), plus your student teaching experience to finish your bachelor’s degree and get certified to teach in a middle or high school setting.
Apply to Madison College and select the "Liberal Arts Transfer - Education" as your primary program.
Once admitted, we'll work with you to develop a structured path for completing an associate degree at Madison College by choosing courses that best match your teaching interests at your preferred transfer institution.
