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:

  • 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. 
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 561Applications of Lean Principles
TM 572Innovative Leadership
TM 594Research 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.
