Ph.D. Manufacturing and Technology Management.
The basic philosophy underlying the doctoral program is that researchers in manufacturing and technology management require a careful and creative mix of functional management specialties, economics, technology, supply chain management, manufacturing, commercialization, and information technologies. Regardless of track, students must become experts in applying analytical tools such as statistics, optimization and research methodology. Therefore, the program is designed to provide students with abilities and skills to integrate and synthesize these diverse yet important related areas.
