4+1 Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Technical Management
The purpose of the Master of Science in Technical management degree is to prepare people to successfully address supervisory and managerial needs in a technological environment. The industrial manager’s role is viewed as the link between management and technical expertise, and involves matching resources in uncoordinated areas, working through people, and making and implementing management decisions, while simultaneously formulating technical strategies.
This program combines the concepts of management and business administration with the technical expertise developed in mathematics, and the quantitative sciences. Students will take courses in finance for technical managers, program management, operations research, and engineering economy. They will also select several courses to build directly upon their bachelor’s area of preparation.
The 4+1 bachelor of science/master of science program involves 30 semester graduate hours and 129 BS hours. Nine hours of graduate course work may count towards both the MS and the BS programs reducing the total number of hours required for the BS/MS program to 150. Students who complete the coursework required in the first three years of the bachelor’s degree in a technical program with grades which qualify them for graduate study may apply for admission to the Master of Science program. In general, application for admission would be made during the term in which the last of the required courses is taken. Final acceptance into the program will be granted on satisfactory completion of work in progress at the time of application.
For additional details, program requirements, and course descriptions, please refer to the information in the graduate studies section of this catalog.
