East Carolina University is one of five universities collaborating to provide an online PhD program in technology management. The degree is awarded through Indiana State University and is designed to prepare scholars for leadership positions in education, industry, government, and business. The program consists of a minimum of 90 s.h. beyond the baccalaureate. Students are required to successfully complete preliminary and comprehensive examinations, design and conduct original research, and defend a doctoral dissertation. An individualized program of study and applied research internship is also required.

The program involves five areas of required study: technical core (15 s.h.), research core (27 s.h.), technical specialization (30 s.h.), internship (6 s.h.), and cognates (12 s.h.). Additional courses may be required to address deficiencies. ITEC 6050  is a prerequisite to all distance learning programs. Design of each candidate’s program of study is dependent on their goals and background experiences.

Four technical specializations are currently available: digital communications systems, construction management, manufacturing systems, quality systems, and human resource development. ECU provides the lead on specializations in digital communication and manufacturing systems. Students identify a “home university” based on their technical specialization and/or geographic location.
