The Master of Science in Technology prepares qualified students and working professionals to assume leadership positions facing the challenges of global technical competition. Faculty mentored creative projects are developed specifically to apply to individual career needs. A selection of graduate electives allows for the choice of additional degree specialization in:

  • Information Technology/Advanced Computer Applications
  • Industrial Technology/Manufacturing
  • Facilities/Construction Management (inactive)

The graduate will have advanced knowledge and skills that are required to function effectively in a modern, international, technical environment and to accept increasing responsibility in industrial and business positions. Elective choices will enable students to increase their technical knowledge within a chosen area of modern technology, as well as their knowledge in a related area such as leadership or communication.

Admission Requirements

Applicants may have technical or non-technical backgrounds with a four-year undergraduate degree required from a recognized institution. Candidates are sought with creative abilities, leadership, interpersonal skills, and personal motivation indicating strong potential to advance in a technology-related career. For regular admission, a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better is required; however, the Graduate Committee evaluates candidates for admission based upon a number of characteristics essential for success in the program. These characteristics include the candidate’s intellectual capacity and individual factors such as motivation, leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills.

Teaching Assistantships

The Master of Science in Technology program may have graduate teaching assistantships available in one or more academic program areas. Teaching assistantships usually include a stipend and substantial fee remission. Teaching assistants typically teach one or two undergraduate introductory-level courses. Generally these are not available to first-term students. Check with the program director for availability.
