Master of Science in 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:

  • communicate effectively in written, oral, graphic, and visual modes;
  • understand the management of projects, human resources, and technology;
  • function effectively on teams and within a diverse environment; and
  • have knowledge of contemporary issues and an understanding of the impact of technology applications from a global perspective.
     
Course and Capstone Requirements:
The Master of Science in Technology Management consists of three different plans. A is 33 credits with a thesis, B is 33 credits with comprehensive exams and C is 33 credits with a research project.
