Engineering and Technology Education Division Welcome to the Engineering and Technology Education Division (eTED) of the Association for Career and Technical Education®. Our Division is composed of engineering and technology education teachers from both middle school and high school classrooms across the nation, district and state supervisors of secondary engineering and technology education, plus engineering/technology education teacher educators. The eTED helps promote and enhance secondary engineering and technology education throughout the United States and cooperates with other ACTE Divisions to advance career and technical education nationally.

Included in the Engineering and Technology Education Division  is our STEM Area of Interest. ACTE offers a variety of STEM-related resources to our members, including our STEM SmartBrief. STEM educators wishing to join our STEM area of interest should e-mail us.

From our humble beginnings as manual arts in the Imperial Locomotive Works, to the Boston Manual Arts High School (now MIT), to our prominent place in the Morrill Act of 1862, manual arts, now engineering/technology education, has provided both career exploration and technical skill development for its students. The eTED strives to serve all of the secondary engineering and technology education profession whether the subject content that is taught is construction, communications, manufacturing, power and energy, transportation or pre-engineering.
