Temple's Industrial (Vocational) Education program 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.

This non-degree undergraduate program meets the requirements for Pennsylvania Department of Education instructional certificate in Vocational Instruction (grades 7 through 12).
