The Technology Management degree program prepares individuals to leverage technology as a leader in all industries. Students prepare to plan, direct, organize, and control operations. The program balances knowledge with the skills necessary to lead technical teams. Students may concentrate in many different science, technology, engineering and math focus areas depending on interest (e.g. management of information technology, management of precision manufacturing, management of a science lab). Hands-on application of theory learned in the classroom is an integral part of the program.
