The Bachelor of Science in Education in Career and Technical Education's concentration in Industrial Education (B.S.ED in IE) is designed to prepare students who expect to teach career and technical education subjects in grades 7-12 and at the 2-year college level in public and private schools. Subject area content (occupational competency assessment credit for industry experience) and professional education content are combined with general education content (university curriculum) in order to provide the student with a general education, a field of specialization, and professional training. Moreover, the curriculum aims to combine these elements in such proportions as to give students the balanced perspective of the relation that industrial education bears to education as a whole.

For both the B.S.ED in IE degree as well as vocational certification, there is an occupational experience and an occupational competency testing requirement which must be met. The student must pass an occupational competency assessment (or the equivalent) and have completed or complete two years of occupational wage-earning experience (or 4,000 hours) beyond the time needed to learn the occupation. 

The B.S.ED in IE program consists of a total of 126-127 credits, of which seventy-eight of those credits may be used to secure a Vocational Instructional I and Vocational Instructional II certification. In addition, the student can also be awarded 24 credits for passing an Occupational Competency Assessment.

  1. The total number of credit hours at graduation may be greater for some students based on initial placement exams, transfer evaluations, individual curricular choices, and academic progress.
  2. Certain courses fulfill multiple requirements. In consultation with the advisor, students will be able to plan their curriculum more effectively.
  3. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites for any given course or course sequence. See the Prerequisite and Co-requisite Policy in the university-wide Academic Policies section in this Bulletin.
