Courses & Curriculum
The Master of Science in Technology Innovation curriculum prepares you to drive the development of innovative smart and connected solutions.
An Interdisciplinary Curriculum
In this intensive 15-month program, students learn how to take an innovation from concept to development and launch. To get there, you’ll be immersed in project-based coursework in design thinking, technology development and entrepreneurship.
Design thinking courses will teach students how to define a clear design problem and take a user-centered approach to the design process. Technology courses will cover topics such as managing data, signal processing, and hardware prototyping, while the entrepreneurship courses will focus on start-up basics, team building, marketing and intellectual property law.
When you graduate, you’ll be able to:
- Identify user needs so you can design and develop appropriate technology
- Understand and navigate design challenges
- Prototype hardware and software systems
- Assess the technical feasibility of emerging smart solutions
- Understand technology product development processes
- Pitch an idea for an innovation to potential funders
- Understand the basics of launching a start-up
- Demonstrate the steps of translating an innovation into a business venture
To earn your Master of Science in Technology Innovation, you need to complete 60 graduate credits, including a launch project. All courses are required – there are no substitutions or electives.
