Through the technology education program with the UW-Platteville Department of Industrial Studies, you’ll study professional education and technology as you prepare to become certified to teach in a middle or secondary school. You’ll be introduced to the theories, science and technology employed by modern manufacturing, and earn practical experience demonstrating equipment, processes, and techniques in a lab and work shop setting.

Coursework covers the topics of graphic communication, material processing, computer aided drafting and design, power systems and controls, construction materials and processes, and educational theory and practice. Plus, opportunities for internships and hands-on learning early in your education give you the real-life skills employers desire.

The strength of UW-Platteville’s technology education program lies in its unique collaboration with the School of Education. The program draws on UW-Platteville’s long tradition of providing excellence in teacher education and combines that tradition with highly qualified faculty and modern laboratory settings in the industrial studies field.
