This degree from Stony Brook University includes a common core of 6 credits, a block of 15 credits specific to the concentration, and 9 credits of electives.

Technology shapes every facet of modern life. Familiarity with the characteristics, capabilities, and limitations of current and emerging technologies is indispensable to wise and effective decisions and practices in government, business, and personal life. At all levels and in all disciplines, careers in industry, government, and education ever more turn on the ability to see and seize the opportunities and address the problems that technology often presents. Technological developments are indeed re-defining those very careers and changing the workplace itself.

Managing modern technologies calls upon a synthesis of tools drawn from many disciplines: science and engineering, computers and information, economics and regulation, psychology and community values, design and assessment. The Master’s Degree in Technological Systems Management provides professionals in all fields and people planning such careers with state-of-the-art concepts, analytical tools, and practical skills for managing specific technological systems and improving their performance.
