Areas and Levels of Studies

The study for the Masters Degree in Technology Management has three main tracks; namely, Engineering Track, Information Track, and Business Track. Each student has to choose specialized courses from the available list of courses belonging to the track of his/her field of specialization. In addition his/her research study in the thesis should also reflect this specialization.

Currently the TMP offers courses at two levels:

  • Graduate Diploma, and
  • Masters of Science in Technology Management.

These levels cover a variety of topics ranging from technical to managerial disciplines and include facilities for supervised research

The courses are also offered in two parallel streams:

  • Full-time stream, and
  • Part-time stream. (where education takes place mainly in the evenings).

In the Part time stream student can extend the period of study up to double that of the full time stream. This allows employed students to adjust their effort according to their employment work load.

Diploma level

The course is meant for those who are currently in positions of responsibility dealing with technological issues in a particular sector: manufacturing industy, oil industry, construction industry, all other industries; those expected to assume such positions, or those who are interested in pursuing management careers in technology in different environments. The curriculum provides the basic skills needed in technology management, both at the national/regional (macro-) and the project/enterprise (micro-) levels. It covers both the scientific – analytical and the socio-economic tools needed.

The Programme is oriented to: concerned members of Governmental Institutions, industrialists, businessmen & women, members of the Research and Development institutes, as well as technology management planners. It gives an insight view for how to manage technology transfer by selecting, acquiring, implementing, absorbing, and adapting the technology. It addresses the managing of technological innovation and how to create enabling environment for enterprises to invent ideas and innovate new products, processes, and services; in order to gain competitive advantages in the global market.

A diploma research project is required to be performed and presented by each student. The subject of that project will be an applied research point related to technology.

M.Sc. level

Apart from a number of advanced courses in the basic skills, a range of electives addressing current and future technological issues is also offered. Students are expected to prepare and defend a thesis on some practical real-life technology subjects from within the Region.
