MAJ08938 Technology Management
In a world where innovation is a key to success, leaders are called to the fore to manage people and projects. The Technology Management major is designed for students who have a technical background or a keen interest in technology and therefore a strong alignment with analytical approaches. From this platform the objectives are underpinned by the desire to expose students to a broader body of knowledge and range of approaches than experienced in a purely technical framework.
A key issue is the benefit that accrues from supplementing analytical and mathematical modelling approaches with business and social science skills. Much of the value and strength of the Technology Management major relate to consideration of approaches and perceptions that are extensions of, or build upon, an engineering/scientific view point. The differences between technocratic approaches and human and societal constructs are brought into sharp focus broadening the perspectives of students.
The major is specifically designed to enhance understanding of the need for technology, people and society to be viewed as closely interrelated aspects of all engineering and business activity.
