DeVry University Mesa AZ
To meet the needs of adult students, DeVry developed its bachelor’s-degree-completion program in Technical Management. The program offers technical specialties to facilitate students’ advancement to supervisory or management positions in their chosen field of specialization. Specialties are shown in the following program outline, as is a general technical option, which students may take in lieu of a specific technical specialty. Program Objectives The program is designed to produce graduates who are able to:
- Effectively use applied research and problem-solving skills.
- Communicate effectively both orally and in writing.
- Work effectively within a team environment.
- Demonstrate supervisory and management skills within a specialty and across business functions.
- Apply critical thinking skills to identify and evaluate existing processes, assess needs and structure business approaches.
Individual Plans of Study Degree requirements are specified in an individual plan of study developed with each student through academic advising. At least 42 semester-credit hours must be earned in upper-division coursework (DeVry courses numbered 300–499). Program Details Degree: Bachelor of Science in Technical Management. Semesters: 8 full time Minimum credit hours required for graduation: 122 Normal time to complete: 4 years, assuming enrollment in 15–16 credit hours per semester and attending 2 semesters per year; enrollment in 17–20 credit hours may be needed in some semesters (see Course Loads) There may be a slight difference between minimum credit hours required for graduation and total credit hours required if all courses are taken at DeVry. Additional information is available in Programmatic Accreditation and Recognition.
Program Outline Each lettered group in the following outline represents a graduation requirement.
