The degree plan for a Master of Science (MS) in Technology Project Management is designed specifically to prepare individuals with undergraduate degrees in technology disciplines for responsible leadership roles in the technology-based and professional workplaces. The core courses provide in-depth preparation in project management skills. Being able to plan and manage technology projects is an increasingly important skill for those with a technical background.
The directed area of study allows graduate students the opportunity to focus in an area of specialization.
An undergraduate or graduate degree in a technology discipline from an accredited university or college is required for unconditional admission to the technology project management graduate program. The applicant's undergraduate education must reflect a firm foundation in a technology discipline, the equivalent of 24 hours within one technology major or 18 advanced hours within one technology minor. Students who do not meet the necessary requirements will be requested to complete prerequisites before entering the program.
