Why Major in Technical Education?

Rapid technological changes have generated strong demand for technical teachers in Michigan. Graduates of the technical education degree program 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.

Advance Your Career with a Technical Education Degree

The Ferris State University technical education degree 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 from the technical education degree program will be in the major's chosen field.
