Industrial Education Broad Area Major

Additional Links & Information: Tech ED Matrix . Approval Form . CWU Catalog Description

The major qualifies for teaching secondary industrial arts and technology education. Students selecting this major must have a basic background in industrial arts - woods, metals, and drafting; mathematics through trigonometry. One year high school proficiency in these subjects will normally suffice. Admission to this program requires that students must have completed CHEM 111, MATH 153 and PHY 111. (Equivalent courses will be allowed.) In absence of this background, courses may be taken at this University. IET 430 is a prerequisite for student teaching. Students taking this major are required to complete the professional education program requirements offered through the education department.
