INTRODUCTION

The graduate programs in industrial technology, career and technical education, and technology education are offered in the Department of Applied Engineering and Technology Management.  The master of science in career and technical education and technology education degrees meet the professionalization licensing requirements for secondary teaching.

Areas of specialization in career and technical education, human resource development, and technology education, as part of the program leading to the doctor of philosophy degree, are available through cooperative agreements with the College of Education.  To meet the license requirements for career and technical education director, the non-degree post-master’s program is provided.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Applicants will meet the regular admission standards of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the following minimum standards for regular admission to any master’s degree program in the College of Technology:

  1. Graduation with a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an appropriate association such as the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
  2. An undergraduate record with no deficiencies in the areas chosen for study and the completion of any undergraduate courses that may be needed for preparation for specific graduate courses as determined by advisement.
  3. International students must meet the regular admission requirements of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies, including a minimum score of 550 on the TOEFL test. (Students who possess a degree from an American university are not required to take the TOEFL.)

Students with undergraduate grade point averages between 2.25 and 2.7 may petition the College of Technology Graduate Committee for conditional admission. Specific conditions will be clearly identified at the time of admission by the coordinator of the respective technology degree programs. No student may satisfactorily complete a technology degree program without first receiving regular admission.

Prospective students who have completed other undergraduate programs may request evaluation of their programs of preparation for identification of deficiencies, the removal of which, with undergraduate courses, would qualify them for admission.
