Meet the demand for skilled industrial technologists and management professionals with a 100% online technology management degree from California University of Pennsylvania.

The technology management online bachelor degree from Cal U Global Online gives you the technical and technological competence to excel in an industrial management career in business, industry or government.

And Cal U’s online degree program lets you complete your bachelor’s degree on your own schedule, full time or part time, from anywhere in the world.

Career-focused skills for management roles

Technology managers help companies implement the latest technology and determine the strategies and resources that best meet their needs.

Technology managers also direct and supervise the work of technical professionals to ensure a safe, reliable, efficient and productive work environment.

Unlike an information technology degree, the B.S. in Technology Management at Cal U provides education and experience in areas deemed essential for certification by the Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering:

  • Production/operations management.
  • Quality control.
  • Safety management.
  • Production and inventory control.

Students also develop skills in cost analysis, manufacturing operations, project management and computer integrated manufacturing.

Program graduates are positioned to find employment in manufacturing, Pennsylvania’s third largest industry, employing more than 10% of the total workforce. Yet many production and operations management positions remain vacant because they require a bachelor’s degree.

About the Technology Management Degree

The technology management program at Cal U is accredited by the Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering (www.atmae.org), a professional organization and accrediting body founded in 1967.

You must hold an associate of science (A.S.) degree to enter the 60-credit B.S. in Technology Management program. You can begin the online bachelor’s degree program in any term, and study full or part time, as your schedule allows.

Students in the technology management program learn the various operational elements, components and functions within modern industrial and online engineering technology operations. You’ll also study the challenges facing technology management professionals.

Coursework combines theory with practical skills in areas such as:

  • Creative problem solving.
  • Economic analysis.
  • Health and safety.
  • Industrial organization and functions.
  • Lean production.
  • Project planning and management.
  • Quality control.
  • Supervision.
  • Supply chain management.

In addition, general education courses develop skills in critical thinking, leadership, and interpersonal and communication skills — essential competencies for anyone in a management or supervisory role.

You may choose either an internship or a research project as the program’s capstone experience. Cal U helps you connect with employers offering internships, or you may investigate a relevant production or operations management issue for your research project. 

Employment Outlook

More than 95% of Cal U’s technology management graduates find employment. The program prepares students for careers as:

  • Engineering technicians.
  • Production supervisors.
  • Purchasing agents.
  • Industrial researchers.
  • Safety managers.
  • Systems analysts.
  • Quality control engineers.

Graduates also are career-ready for positions as industrial technicians, industrial trainers and sales representatives.

A recent survey of manufacturing executives found that overall management-level positions are expected to increase by 7%-10% in the next 10 years.

Admissions Requirements

  • An associate of science degree (minimum of 60 credit-hours) in a technology or technology-related field is a prerequisite for admission.
  • Of the 60 credit-hours from the A.S. degree, 30 credits will be applied to general education requirements, 27 to requirements of the major, and 3 credits will be applied as electives.
  • To earn the B.S. in Technology Management, a student must successfully complete all required courses, including all laboratory, writing-intensive and special experience courses.
  • At least 30 of the student’s last 60 credit-hours of coursework must be completed at California University of Pennsylvania.
