About the Program
The Bachelor of Technology in Technology Management (BTech-TM) degree is bridging the increasing gap between the diploma entry-level technologist and management. The reason for its development is in direct response to demand from industry for leading-edge technologists who have the technical theory, innovative skills, and ethical and social awareness required for sustainable industry, and for critical thinking practitioners who are able to address technological challenges in today's economy.
The program employs the same system of periodic reviews and surveys to ensure value and relevance to our graduates and their employers.
This program has a number of full-time and part-time options to meet the degree requirements. Student(s) must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 or better throughout Year 3 and 4 of the degree, and successfully complete their capstone project in order to meet all degree requirements for graduation.
