Department of Technology

BS in Technology Management

Students in the Technology Management degree program will become technically oriented management professionals who plan, direct, organize, and control operations in a wide variety of industrial, business, and service organizations. Students concentrate in one of the following areas.

Industrial Management Concentration

This concentration is designed to prepare graduates for leadership and management positions in a wide variety of technical environments. Students in this concentration take courses to understand the many organizational elements and functions composing industrial operations and will develop a broad-based, cross-sectional/functional understanding as a "generalist" management professional. This concentration is available to transfer students with an associate degree in a technical discipline and nontraditional students with related technical experience and training equivalent to an associate degree.

Precision Manufacturing Concentration

This concentration is designed to prepare graduates for leadership and management positions in a computer-intensive/automated manufacturing environment. Students in this concentration take management oriented courses in areas such as project management, industrial organization, facility planning, production control, quality, cost analysis and control, safety, accounting, and information systems. This concentration is available to transfer students with an associate degree in a manufacturing discipline and nontraditional students with related technical experience and training equivalent to an associate degree.

Information and Communications Technology Concentration

This concentration is designed to prepare graduates for leadership and management positions in a computer applications-oriented environment integral to most organizations. Students in this concentration take courses that emphasize theory and application relating to the management and operation of computer and technical systems used for communications, information management, control technology, and publishing. Students completing this program will develop a focused understanding of computer applications-based and data/information-intensive operations. Students may also elect to complete minors in computer science, business administration, economics, or studio art. This concentration is available to four year students and transfer students with an associate degree in an information related discipline and nontraditional students with related technical experience and training equivalent to an associate degree in an information related discipline.

Electro-Mechanical Systems Concentration

This concentration is designed to prepare graduates for career leadership and management positions in computer-controlled/automated, equipment-intensive environments. Students in this concentration take courses that emphasize theory and application relating to the design, control, and integration of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic components and assemblies. Students completing this program will develop a focused understanding of power and control systems utilized in industrial, environmental protection, construction, medical, transportation, alternate energy, and military sectors. This concentration is available to four year students and transfer students with an associate degree in an electricity/electronic, mechanical or computer related discipline and nontraditional students with related technical experience and training to satisfy the technical competency requirements of the concentration. 

All students must meet University Core curriculum requirements and additional Departmental requirements. Specific requirements for Bachelor of Science degree programs offered through the Department of Technology are indicated in the following tables. A minimum of 15 credit hours or 5 courses must be taken in the Department.

NOTE: Students in the technology management degree program will be required to complete a senior assessment as part of the graduation requirement.

NOTE: Completion of the electro-mechanical (EM) concentration requires a minimum of 121 credits satisfying the University, department, professional, and technical requirements. Academic course equivalency or transfer from regionally accredited related associate's degree programs can only be applied to the University, department, and/or technical requirements via portfolio assessment or transfer. Students interested in the EM concentration must meet with an academic advisor regarding the suitability of credit for portfolio assessment or articulation as applied to the 121 credit requirement for graduation.
