Technology Management M.S.


The Master of Science in Technology Management (MSTM) Program is designed for individuals who hold bachelor degrees in technology management or similar industrial-technical fields—and now wish to further their academic preparation and professional advancement.

  • The MSTM Program consists of 36 credit hours that provide the theoretical and practical learning experiences needed to prepare graduates for leadership positions in industry and/or doctoral-level programs such as the Ph.D. in Technology Management.
  • The program consists of a core of common courses, a concentration, and a culminating experience.
  • Concentrations are offered in automotive, manufacturing, mechanical engineering technology, packaging, and quality. Each concentration offers an individualized contract of study that best fits the student's prior coursework, experiences, and goals. To be admitted, the student's bachelor's degree must have included substantial coursework related to the MSTM concentration.
  • Most students complete the program in two years. The University allows part-time students to take up to seven years to earn the degree; however, the program is typically completed in far less time.

All courses are offered online. On-campus visits are not required. High-speed Internet access is required. Students also have the option of completing this program on the ISU campus, located in Terre Haute, Indiana.
