» Department of Curriculum & Instruction   » College of Education

COE machinery training

A Master of Science (M.S.) or Education Specialist (Ed.S.) in Technology Training and Development is designed for experienced workers seeking professional development and growth. The increasing availability of corporate training has put experienced trainers and managers in high demand. An advanced degree in this area will prove to be increasingly valuable as more corporations return to in-house training programs.

Degree emphases include: 

  • Business technology
  • Industrial technology, safety
  • Emergency planning and management (certificate available)

As a student in the program, you will study the resources, systems and products of technology within a hands-on environment. Your focus will be to learn how things work, how they are made and how to make them better through problem solving, quality control and optimized production flow. With a solid combination of technical and business training, you will be well prepared to succeed in the workforce.

Students have ample opportunities to apply classroom theories to realistic situations. Under the guidance of our experienced faculty in a low-key environment, students will get the most out of their education.

This degree is offered at three of our University of Idaho campus locations: Moscow, Boise and Idaho Falls.
