There is a great need for highly qualified teachers of science and technology at the secondary school level. Nationwide, middle and high schools are facing a shortage of technology teachers. The Technology Education (TEED) program is a partnership between NJIT and Rutgers University, Newark, offering a degree in Engineering Technology and an instructional certification with the Teacher of Technology Education (1810) endorsement.   

The technology education curriculum provides an in-depth knowledge of various engineering technology disciplines in addition to the required education courses. Students will take a core group of technical courses, and have an ability to concentrate in one or more of the Engineering Technology options. Students will also complete their degree with a 6 credit student teaching course.    

The full four-year curriculum for the program is shown below.  Students who wish to enter the program as a transfer student are typically students with an A.A.S. degree in an Engineering Technology program or an A.S. program in a technical discipline.  These students should have completed most or all of the courses, or their equivalents, in the first two years of the program as shown below.  In the case of all students, both four-year and transfer, a minimum of 131 credits is required for graduation.
