|DESCRIPTION:||Sustained growth in the integration of various technologies into all professional fields to improve productivity points to an increasing need for technology education in the 21st century. The Master of Technology meets various needs for graduate education in several critical fields of technology. The curriculum, also offered in a flexible distance learning mode, allows students to take additional graduate courses leading to specialization in aviation and aeronautics, automated manufacturing, computer technology, electronics and control systems, quality systems, sustainability and technology education.|
|An admissions committee of the College of Technology Graduate Faculty will review all applications. Admission will be considered by examination of the applicant’s background on an individual basis. Applicants with deficiencies may be admitted conditionally, which may include a requirement for completion of appropriate undergraduate coursework that will not count toward the master’s degree. A baccalaureate from an accredited college or university is required. Applicants with an undergraduate degree in an approved science- or technology-related discipline, and who have a composite undergraduate 2.75 GPA will be admitted unconditionally.
In exceptional cases, an applicant without a technical degree or with a composite GPA below 2.75 may be admitted, conditionally or unconditionally, based on strong letters of recommendation or significant experience related to the intended area of study. These applicants should submit any additional information that may assist the admissions committee in assessing their academic, technical, or professional background and abilities. The additional information may include a resume or professional portfolio summarizing any relevant technical competencies, professional experience, and any academic and professional achievements in areas related to their intended studies.
Each applicant must submit three letters of recommendation from an individual familiar with the applicant’s academic or professional background and abilities. The letters should attest to the applicant’s potential to complete graduate work successfully. Letters of recommendation from persons who are experienced professionals in the applicant’s intended field of study or in a closely related area are acceptable. Recommendations from former or current professors are preferred. In addition, each applicant must submit a one-page statement describing his/her background, interests, and goals, and how this program will help to achieve those goals.
