INTRODUCTION

This degree is an interdisciplinary graduate major offered by three cooperating departments within the College of Technology and administered by a coordinator of industrial technology graduate study appointed by the dean. The three cooperating departments are: Aviation Technology; Electronics, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering Technology; and Technology Management. The technical or technical related component is provided by any one of the three cooperating departments depending on the technical emphasis choice of the student.

Advisement of the student will be performed by a faculty member in the department of technical emphasis. Advisor assignments are made by the coordinator of the master of science in Industrial Technology Program.

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 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.
