The need for training at the postgraduate level in Management of Technology (MOT) has been recognised by top universities around the world. The Master of Science (Management of Technology) programme is designed to provide scientists, engineers, and technology professionals the fundamental knowledge of innovation and technology management. The topics covered include the types of innovation, the evolution of technology, technology forecasting, management of intellectual property, new product development, human aspects of innovation management, and many more.

For budding entrepreneurs, you will be able to learn new venture creation and technology strategies.
