Technology and Engineering Education (Technology Studies)

This program can lead to certification to teach technology education in grades K-12 in the public schools of Connecticut. In addition to careers in public school teaching, technology education graduates may also function as instructors or supervisors in private schools, industry, government, or rehabilitation programs. Coursework prepares students for entry into the Technology Education program at CCSU.

A merger of Connecticut's 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with the student's Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current Tunxis Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page: ct.edu/ctstate/academics.
