Technology Management (M.S.) Degree
Technology Management Masters Program Overview
The Technology Management Master’s Program is designed to develop leaders adept at managing technological change, and skilled in establishing and maintaining superior competitive advantage for their respective enterprises or for new ventures. For an enterprise, continuing advancement of technology provides both opportunities and threats.

The UB Technology Management Program is specifically designed to develop skills and competencies such as:
- Identifying and evaluating the impact of rapidly changing technology and managing those changes.
- Designing programs to identify, develop and implement innovative technological based solutions for enterprises.
- Managing the effective planning and execution of those technology based initiatives and the integration of their results into the mainstream of an enterprises’ strategy, processes and operations.
- The application of technology to create wealth by developing new products and launching new businesses.
- Leadership, the creation and sustenance of high-performance global teams and enabling innovation.

Stem and OPT
The M.S. degrees offered by the School of Engineering at the University of Bridgeport are classified by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) degrees. Therefore, all International Students who earn an M.S. degree are eligible for twelve (12) months of OPT (Optional Practical Training) and at the end of the twelve months of OPT, the student and the company the student works for, can apply for an extension of seventeen (17) additional months of work, as long as the company is an E-verify company. In summary, a graduate with an M.S. degree can work under OPT in the U.S.A. for a total of twenty-nine (29) months.
