DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY PROGRAM

Consortium for Doctoral Studies in Technology Management

The graduate program leading to a doctor of philosophy in technology management is offered through the College of Technology at Indiana State University in collaboration with a consortium of four additional universities. This unique organization of universities having studies in technology include Bowling Green State University; University of Central Missouri; East Carolina University; Indiana State University; and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The consortium brings together these leading schools/colleges of technology in the United States to capitalize on existing resources and expertise in specialized areas of technology. The Consortium university faculty have been nationally recognized for their expertise and leadership in the development of the profession.

Consortium Coordinating Council

The Consortium Coordinating Council includes one representative from each of the five participating universities, who assumes the role of Program Coordinator for the respective institution.  The Director of the Ph.D. in Technology Management Program at Indiana State University is also a member of the Coordinating Council.  Selection of each Program Coordinator is based on recommendation by the participating university.  Affirmation of recommendation is managed through an approval process by the school/college of technology, industrial technology department, or other appropriate/approved technology area or department at each respective institution. The responsibility of the Consortium Coordinating Council is to advise and recommend on the development and operation of the consortium Ph.D. in Technology Management Program and/or population therein.

INTRODUCTION

The Doctor of Philosophy in Technology Management program is designed to prepare students for positions of leadership in the public and private sectors of society. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will have developed skills in research procedures, acquired expertise in instructional processes, and will be able to provide service to the industrial and educational community.

The program maintains most of the traditional requirements characteristic of advanced graduate study, but is unique in using the resources of a consortium of five universities who collaborate to present a well-rounded and robust program.  The component construct of the program is managed through online and face-to-face presentation platforms, but is considered a distance program.  These member universities have programs staffed by faculty having expertise in many areas of technology. Additionally, laboratories with specialized equipment are available that provide opportunities for research and study. Each university brings to the consortium unique philosophical quality and extensive library holdings that add depth and quality to the program.

Alternative communication technology is used to deliver key components of the program such as a general technology core, linking campuses to better serve students. This allows all members of the consortium to capitalize on the efficient use of existing resources while maintaining quality.

Program information on the doctorate in technology management is located at http://www.indstate.edu/technology/consortphd . Hyperlink connections to the Consortium universities, faculty members and coordinators at each university are also available at this site.

INTRODUCTION

The Department of Human Resource Development and Performance Technologies administers programs leading to the master’s and doctoral degrees. These programs enable students to specialize in career and technical education or human resource development.  Students may complete all requirements for either degree in the on-campus program or through distance education.

Areas of specialization in career and technical education and human resource development, 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.

The Department offers frequent opportunities for students to participate in professional activities in the field (internships), student activities in the department (Society of Human Resource Management), and scholarly activities at professional meetings (Academy of Human Resource Development and Association of Career and Technical Education). Students who are interested in conducting research may wish to assist in faculty-sponsored research projects or may wish to apply for funds to conduct their own research projects.

 

HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The master of science degree in human resource development for higher education and industry is designed for individuals seeking positions involving the development of people in work roles in industry, government, and higher education and has two options. One option is to increase specialization in the area of current employment through selected courses in other disciplines. The second is to conduct research through a thesis. The degree program is open to persons who do not have an undergraduate degree in human resource development. Human Resource Development 605 may be required to meet undergraduate deficiencies.
