School of Engineering Launches New BS/MS in Management of Technology

Fairfield University’s School of Engineering is offering a new 5th-year option for a BS/ MS dual degree in management of technology (MOT), targeted towards engineering students who want to work at the interface of technology and business.

Fairfield’s dual degree MOT track is a multi-disciplinary field that integrates all engineering disciplines, along with technology management, systems and business. Students that enter the program combine Fairfield’s existing bachelor of science in engineering degree with its master’s in management of technology.

The program emphasizes the integration of business and management knowledge with an engineering curriculum that prepares students for leadership roles in technology-based organizations.

School of Engineering Dean Bruce Berdanier, PhD, said, “We have observed sustained high demand for graduates of the MOT program. The two degrees together are a dynamite combination for companies that want to invest in and manage the development of technological innovation.”
