Technology Management (Ph.D.)

Ph.D. in Technology Management Program Overview

The Ph.D. in Technology Management (TM) is designed to meet growing industry and academic needs by offering a quality doctoral program to both part-time and full-time students in two inter-related areas:

1) new technology venture creation (e.g. entrepreneurship and corporate venturing), and

2) select current and emerging technologies (technology concentrations).

The program will encompass an integrated multi-disciplinary technology and management approach.

The Ph.D.-TM program is specifically designed to develop interdisciplinary skills and competencies in research and management of technology-dependent enterprises, technology-based entrepreneurship and new product, service and venture creation.

While the Ph.D.-TM is housed in the Department of Technology Management, the Ph.D. degree facilitates and encourages interdisciplinary studies across the School of Engineering and other schools and utilizes their complementary research facilities, faculty and lab resources.

The Ph.D. degree is a certification of critical aptitude in scholarship, creativity, knowledge in the discipline, enterprise in research, and proficiency and style in communication. A candidate obtaining a Ph.D. degree must display a thorough understanding in the major areas of Technology Management and must master the necessary tools and techniques so as to be able to make original contributions to the field of Technology Management. An equally important aspect is that of proficiency in oral and written communication skills.

The requirements of the Ph.D. program are: successful completion of preliminary examinations and courses, satisfactory performance in the written comprehensive and oral (proposal defense) examinations, admission to Ph.D. candidacy, successful completion and defense of original work documented as a dissertation, and the satisfaction of additional requirements such as teaching courses, seminars and publications.

The formal degree to be offered is the Doctor of Philosophy in Technology Management. This will be awarded to candidates who complete all the requirements of the Ph.D. degree described later in this section.

An M.S. in Technology Management is also offered.
