What to Expect
Bachelor of Technology in Technology Management (BTech-TM) students build on their strong technical backgrounds, adding the leadership and critical-thinking skills they need to take on management and supervisory roles. They gain a global perspective, focusing on social, economic and environmental issues, and develop skills in:
- innovation, transition and change management
- effective multi-media communications
- planning and strategy development
- staffing and supervision
- critical thinking and problem-solving
The BTech-TM program is classified as a 'Full-time' program in the NAIT Academic System.
Classroom & Study Hours
The BTech-TM program is offered in a number of different ways which will determine classroom and study hours. We offer full-time and part-time options (students enrolled in three classes or more are considered full-time students). As a BTech-TM student, you may enroll in face-to-face or online courses. Most face-to-face courses are held in the evening to provide students with an opportunity to network with colleagues in industry.
Once you start your first course, you will have 7 years to complete the full program. You are required to remain active in the program every academic year.
