Science and Technology Studies (STS)
STS is a growing field that draws on the full range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities to examine the ways that science and technology shape, and are shaped by, society, politics, and culture. Curriculum focuses on contemporary controversies, historical transformations, policy dilemmas, and broad philosophical questions to prepare students as productive and publicly-engaged scholars who advance research and make a difference.
The practice of Systems Engineering involves the application of scientific and engineering initiatives to transform an operational need into a defined system configuration through the interdisciplinary and iterative process of design, test and evaluation. Systems Engineering involves the integration of many different engineering and scientific disciplines in a total effort to plan, design, implement and provide life-cycle support for deliverables that can be characterized as complex systems and which enable enterprise performance in the customer/client operating environment.
The Graduate Certificate in Technology Management is a research-based academic program that serves to expand and improve enterprise capabilities for the management of technological innovation – addressing the full spectrum of basic science (research), technology development, intellectual property, product/service development, deployment, maintenance, modernization, and retirement of complex technologies and systems of integrated technology.
