The degree plan for a Master of Science (MS) in Technology Project Management is designed specifically to prepare individuals with undergraduate degrees in a wide-range of disciplines for responsible leadership roles in technology-based and professional workplaces.
The courses provide in-depth preparation in project management skills. Being able to plan and manage projects of all kind is an increasingly important skill for those working in a variety of industries.
Often referred to as the jobs of the future, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) jobs are among some of the highest paying and in-demand jobs today. The MS in Technology Project Management program is STEM designated. While this not only recognizes the rigor of this program, it also provides an added benefit for international students through an OPT extension.
