Master of Science, Technology Management

Program Rationale:
The Master of Science in Technology Management Program is designed to fulfill the educational needs of students and working professionals whose career paths are directed toward management in technologically-oriented organizations.

 

Program Learning Outcomes:

Graduate students in the program will be expected to:

Demonstrate the knowledge required to select the techniques, skills, and modern tools to manage the life cycle of a product or service;

Show knowledge of the management of operations, including facility requirements and resource planning;

Display the knowledge vital to create a “Lean” working environment;

Exhibit the knowledge required to be an innovative leader and manage a diverse workforce, facilities, and lead project and problem solving teams.

Admission Requirements:
Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education.  Applicants must also have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.70 on a 4.00 point scale (where A is 4.00), or its equivalent, and good standing (3.00 GPA) in all post-baccalaureate course work.

The admissions application, application fee, and official transcripts from each college and university attended (except Central Connecticut State University) must be submitted to the Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Office.

Course and Capstone Requirements:

The Master of Science in Technology Management is a 33-credit master’s, consisting of three different plans. Plan A is 30
credits with a three-credit thesis; Plan B is 33 credits with comprehensive exam; and Plan C is 30 credits with a three-credit applied research project.

a.)    All three plans have a core curriculum (18 credits) as follows:

TM 500 Product Life Cycle Management

TM 510 Industrial Operations Management  

TM 551 Project Management

TM 561 Applications of Lean Principles

TM 572 Innovative Leadership

TM 594 Research in Methods Technology

 

b.)  Directed electives. These are graduate courses in technology at the 400 and 500 level, as approved by a faculty advisor. This allows the student flexibility to develop a specialization. Students selecting a strand will take four courses in that strand, five if the Plan B option is chosen.

Some examples could include, but are not limited to:

• Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma

• Supply Chain and Logistics Management

• Environmental and Occupational Safety
