Technical Management

In the Technical Management degree program, students learn how to apply specific management skills to their technical specialty. This unique degree has evolved into a technical program relating to industry as a whole. The curriculum emphasizes modern management concepts and methods, and gives students a set of well-defined technical tools. It also focuses on building the communication and management skills that are needed in technically-oriented enterprises. 

Major management disciplines are studied as a foundation for large-scale planning and decision-making, and students enhance classroom interaction by sharing perspectives and experiences from their work situations. Graduates with previous relevant experience will be more likely to move directly into management positions upon graduation, whereas those graduates with limited or no relevant experience may have to start in an entry-level position and work their way up to management.

As a Technical Management major, there are several areas of specialization to choose from: 

Selecting an area of specialization will depend upon your personal interests, skills, strengths and program availability in your local area. This program is offered through the Worldwide campus.
