Technology education minor at VCSU has been redesigned for the information age. It is not limited to computers, but provides a variety of hands-on laboratory experiments with many new technologies. It provides awareness and information about a wide variety of technology related careers and non-traditional opportunities, and prepares all students to prosper in an information and technology rich society. It is a perfect time to prepare to become a technology teacher. Curriculum focuses on design, problem-solving, critical thinking and engineering technology concepts.
Several options exist for completing the laboratory activities. On-campus students may come to McCarthy Hall, Monday-Friday, daytime hours, to use the lab to complete their activities. Student within driving distance may complete their laboratory activities during the scheduled Saturday labs at McCarthy Hall or elsewhere if facilities are available. Distance students may also complete labs at home if you have appropriate tools available.
NOTE: This minor alone does not completely fulfill the requirements for a university degree. The student must also complete a major and other requirements. If this minor is of particular interest, you may want to pursue the major in Technology Education.
