Technology Management

Bridging the Gap between Technology and Business

Technology Management is a multidisciplinary field that prepares technical professionals to provide effective planning, selection, implementation and management of technology to solve today’s complex and challenging problems. This program bridges the gap between technology and business by equipping technologists with the expertise and leadership skills needed to advance their career in today’s fast-paced world. Students will expand their breadth of knowledge beyond a specific technical field into management and business. Business knowledge, organization insights and communication skills will be integrated with technical knowledge to develop proficient technical managers and leaders of projects, operations, organizations and people.

Designed for Working Professionals

The Technology Management program at the University of Idaho is a distance education program for technical professionals that want to progress in their careers. It is a multidisciplinary program giving students the opportunity to explore the analytical, technical and human resource aspects of managing in a technical environment. The program is designed to ensure continued technical growth while integrating a broad set of business, project or process management, and technical management courses to prepare the technologist for extensive management responsibilities. Students come from diverse backgrounds in industry, government and military. The University of Idaho faculty bring a blend of practical experience to the classroom from academia and industry.

Program Delivery

Faculty and instructors teach courses at U of I locations in Moscow, Idaho Falls and Boise. Courses may be delivered live, online via the web or produced for online delivery by Engineering Outreach (EO). EO courses are accessible within 2 hours of production.
