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
