Students majoring in industrial technology are oriented toward working on particular, “hands-on” projects. They are less theoretically-oriented and more interested in doing things that result in hard outcomes. Some states require teachers to have work experience in a business/industry related to their teaching field. Students may even receive course credits for past work experience in lieu of subject area course work.
