It is essential that graduates of the program have completed the course work required in one (or more) of the Major Areas of Specialization.
The major areas of specialization are Construction Management, Digital Communication Systems, HRD and Industrial training, Manufacturing Systems and Quality Systems.
The Major Area of Specialization should be supported by the Professional Studies Courses.
This specialized knowledge is enhanced by developing a broader understanding of the interrelations of technology with other disciplines such as science, economics, sociology, and government policy designed into the General Technology Core.
Research is critical to the advancement of knowledge in the profession. Statistical and design procedures can be applied and reinforced by the instructional methodology used in teaching the specialization area. Application can be made during the internship. The dissertation is a major piece of research including proposal writing, seeking new information, and concluding with results of the study.
The Course Catalog and long range schedule for the Ph.D. in Technology Management are available through the links provided on the left. Courses and schedules are arranged by program areas and concentrations for the technical specializations.
The long range planning schedule is a 5-year plan with each course rotating through the plan on a two-year rotation. While unlikely, the long range schedule can change over a period of time. You will need to check your Program Of Study to assure that it matches the long range plan. Changing a Program Of Study requires written approval.
