Welcome to the website of the Department of Career and Technology Teacher Education. Our Department offers two specialized, baccalaureate-level, teacher education programs, namely, Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Technology Education.

The Technology Teacher Education program leads to the bachelor's degree as well as the New York State Initial Certificates as technology teachers in kindergarten through 12th grade. Graduates of the program teach a wide range of technology subjects including computer networking, communication systems, drafting, electronics,, electronics systems, graphic communication, robotics, and principles of engineering.

The Career and Technical Teacher Education program prepares teachers for the Initial and Professional Certificates valid for teaching specific CTE subjects within the career fields of family and consumer sciences, health, technical, and the trades in grades 7 through 12. Several graduates of the program occupy prominent administrative and supervisory positions both in the NYC public school system and in business and industrial training programs.

The two programs are unique to City Tech because they are the only such programs for the preparation of Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Technology Education teachers within the City University of New York system. They are also the only such programs in a public university south of Albany. By choosing to enroll in one of our two teacher education programs, you will be making a decision that will open for you the doors to a great career in education.

On behalf of our faculty, I invite you to explore the information on our website and learn more about all the educational programs that we offer. If you have any questions about our program offerings, do not hesitate to contact me.

Dr. Hon Jie Teo, Chair
