Tijjani Mohammed, Chair

The Department of Technology Systems offers graduate programs leading to the graduate certificate, the master of science, and a consortium-based doctor of philosophy (PhD). The department is a leading proponent of collaborative network-based learning and offers many of its graduate programs online. Students are expected to be proficient in use of a personal computer and have access to high speed internet service.

Graduate certificates offered through the department include: computer network professional, cyber security professional, lean six-sigma black-belt (LSSBB), and website developer. The department also offers master of science (MS) programs in network technology, occupational safety, and technology management. The MS in network technology includes studies in the areas of computer networking management, digital communications technology, information security, and web technologies. The MS in occupational safety builds upon expertise in foundational regulatory and technical aspects of occupational safety and is a standalone degree program. The MS in technology management includes study in the areas of industrial distribution and logistics, manufacturing systems, and quality systems. The doctor of philosophy (PhD) in technology management is designed to prepare scholars for leadership positions in education, industry, government, and business. The PhD is offered through a five-university consortium with the degree being awarded through Indiana State University. Graduates from all of these graduate programs are prepared to manage rapidly changing technologies and technical systems.

General Admission Requirements

Applicants must meet the admission requirements of the Graduate School. Acceptance into any master’s degree program in the Department of Technology Systems is based on satisfactory undergraduate grades, scores on a graduate test including the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE), and the Miller’s Analogy Test (MAT), and letters of reference. Completion of an undergraduate degree in a field related to the desired concentration or significant related technical experience are required for admission. Students with limited technical expertise or a non related baccalaureate degree are evaluated on a case-by-case basis by each program’s Graduate Admissions Committee. In some cases, remedial undergraduate courses or additional graduate courses may be required to complement the graduate program.
