The Doctor of Philosophy in Technology Management program is designed to prepare students for positions of leadership in the public and private sectors of society. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will have developed skills in research procedures, will have acquired expertise in instructional processes, and will be able to provide service to the industrial and educational community.
The program maintains most of the traditional requirements characteristic of advanced graduate study, but is unique in using the resources of a consortium of five universities linked together by alternative communication systems. These member universities have programs staffed by faculty having expertise in many areas of technology. Additionally, laboratories with specialized equipment are available that provide opportunities for research and study. Each university brings to the consortium a unique philosophical quality and extensive library holdings that add depth and quality to the program.
Alternative communication technology is used to deliver key components of the program such as a general technology core, linking campuses to better serve students. This allows all members of the consortium to capitalize on the efficient use of existing resources while maintaining quality.
State Restrictions: Each of the states has its own approval processes for out-of-state institutions offering distance education. While Indiana State University endeavors to offer all of its programs to as wide an audience as possible, all ISU distance education programs may not be available in all states. Prospective students from Arizona, Massachusetts, and Minnesota are encouraged to find a relevant graduate program in their state.
