M.S. in the Management of Technology - Message from the Director

Dear Prospective Student,

Strategic management of technology helps position companies in fast-paced markets, influences crucial decision-making, and improves the likelihood of corporate business success. As required by the business interests in modern, technology-dependent enterprises, education in this discipline instructs and trains engineers and scientists, and those with extensive experience in a technology environment, in the management of such functions as:

  • Technology research and development
  • Product design and manufacturing
  • Management of human and physical resources
  • Information and data analysis
  • Systems engineering

Fairfield's M.S. in the Management of Technology program provides the skill set that engineers need to best serve their industry and business concerns. As a student enrolled in the program, you'll work with faculty who have hands-on experience in the areas they teach. Many head their own companies, and all bring to the classroom genuine workplace experiences for discussion, where issues of ethics and justice are intertwined into the curriculum.

In addition, you'll have ample opportunities for industry experience through internships and capstone projects that involve carrying knowledge to the workplace and bringing back lessons from the workplace. You'll work with students and faculty who have a passion for the discipline, motivation and eagerness to learn and teach, and appreciation of the opportunities for learning that Fairfield makes available to all students.

Interested? Feel free to explore the possibilities of advanced study in engineering at Fairfield University, and feel free to e-mail me to either set up an appointment or to clarify any questions you may have about the Master of Science in the Management of Technology.
