The Industrial Technology Department operates within the framework of the vision and mission of the Mico University College and has set three departmental goals:

  • To substantially increase the pool of well prepared Resource and Technology teachers as well as facilitators of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)
  • To promote research and creative work that will increase the intellectual, social and economic capital of Jamaica and the wider Caribbean
  • To develop the human and physical resources of the department so as to achieve full accreditation of its programmes as well as regional recognition of its work

Programme:

The programme offered by the department is the B. Ed. in Industrial Technology Education. The duration is normally 4 years but candidates with a teacher's diploma may complete the programme in 2 years.

This programme prepares teachers to deliver the Industrial Techniques module of Resource and Technology (Grades 7 – 9) as well as a TVET subject at Grades 10 – 12. Areas of specialization are Construction Technology, Electrical Technology and Mechanical Technology. Emphasis is placed on drafting and design, teaching methodology and the management of TVET facilities. Research, problem-solving and the construction of projects are integral aspects of the Industrial Technology Programme at The Mico University College.
