Modern technologies are redefining products, services, processes, organizational forms, business models and industry structures. Understanding the managerial implications of these technologies has become a fast-growing and highly important arena for business research.


The mission of the School of Engineering's Doctor of Philosophy in Technology Management (PhD-TM) program is to educate and train scholars who will produce first-rate technology management research and who will become faculty members in leading universities.

The program fosters student research through its focus on high-quality supervision and training by faculty members who poses significant research strengths in a diverse range of technology management-related fields.

This terminal degree program is for research-oriented students who are largely interested in research-based positions at academic and research institutions. Universities with undergraduate and graduate programs that emphasize the integration of technology and management are a primary source of career opportunities for PhD-TM graduates.
