Combined B.A./M.S. or B.S./M.S. - Technology

Students with majors in a Department of Technology program, interested in the combined program should declare their intent by the end of the junior year (or have completed at least 90 semester hours). They should complete an Application for Admission to Graduate Study and the departmental application, as well as two professional references and have them submitted to the Graduate Coordinator before attempting to register. Application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission.

Upon admittance to the combined B.A./M.S. or B.S./M.S. program, undergraduate students during their senior year may register for a maximum of 12 hours of graduate credit as a senior, with the approval of the student’s advisor, the instructor of the course(s), and the head(s) of the department(s) offering the course(s).  The admitted student may enroll and self-identify themselves with every instructor in the first two weeks of the semester in these 9 hours during the senior year, but before the baccalaureate degree is awarded. To be eligible for this exception to the undergraduate registration policies, the student must have earned at least 90 hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher at the time of registration. When registering for the graduate courses, approvals must be obtained on the same student request, with the IT Graduate Coordinator serving as the advisor.  (See policies and procedures for Graduate Credit for Undergraduate Students.)   

Graduate work completed on the early admission basis will be counted as graduate credit only after the baccalaureate degree has been awarded and enrolled for graduate course work within one year of the awarding of the baccalaureate degree. Actual admission to graduate study and classification as a graduate student commences the term after the student has completed the baccalaureate.

Doctor of Technology Degree Program

The University of Northern Iowa offers the Doctor of Technology degree to meet the increasing need for advanced degree work in this field. Applied technology is a relatively new and rapidly expanding knowledge base for a wide variety of professional fields: these include technology, applied engineering, trade and industrial education, technical institute education, industrial training, and technology transfer. This applied research-oriented terminal degree program also includes the study of the technological systems used in industry and their effect on society and culture.

The Doctor of Technology degree is designed to develop scholars in the fields of education and industry. Programs emphasize the development of a thorough knowledge of

  1. (a) Technology as an intellectual discipline,
  2. (b) the technological systems used in industry and their effect on people and the environment, and
  3. (c) the potential and limitations of future developments in technological systems and their utilization in industry.

Program emphasis is on providing the intellectual tools necessary to pursue scholarly research and applied practices in the field of applied engineering and technology. Efforts will be made to develop in each student the interest and desire required for a leadership role in improving educational and technology programs and determining directions for future programs. The terminal degree program requires a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit completed beyond the master's degree, including a minimum of 38 hours in 200/6000-level or 300/7000-level course work.

The Doctor of Technology degree program is intended to prepare graduates for one or more of the following professional careers:

  1. Faculty, supervisors, and consultants of applied engineering or technology, trade and industrial education, technical institute education and technology education in secondary schools, colleges and universities.
  2. Researchers and project coordinators, technology transfer specialists, technology forecasters and assessors of technology for industrial policy planning and decision making.
  3. Academic leaders (e.g., deans, department heads, or directors) of technology-oriented programs at postsecondary institutions.
  4. Researchers and research coordinators for education and industry in specific content fields of technology.
  5. Designers, coordinators and directors of applied/engineering and/or industrial training or human resource programs, and related industrial applications.

It is the student's responsibility to be familiar with all degree program requirements and take the initiative in meeting established guidelines. This information may be obtained from the Graduate Programs Coordinator in the Department of Technology.

Students interested in this program must submit a completed Application for Admission to Graduate Study and should contact the Department of Technology for other admission requirements.  Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission.  For requirements concerning admission, candidacy, scholarship, residence, examinations, dissertation, and graduation for the Doctor of Technology refer to www.uni.edu/tech/DIT and other sections of this catalog.

Program Certificates

The University of Northern Iowa makes available, in addition to traditional programs, the opportunity for students to earn program certificates. Program certificates provide an alternative to programs leading to a degree, a major, or a minor; they certify that an individual has completed a program approved by the university. For information on the following certificates, contact the Department of Technology or the Office of the Registrar, which serves as the centralized registry.

Advanced Technology Certificate

This Advanced Technology Certificate program provides graduate students with the competencies, skills, and knowledge essential for the industrial technology environment where technical, supervisory, and managerial competencies are crucial. This program will provide an alternative to the program leading to the Master of Science in Technology degree, but the student may continue to satisfy the foundation requirement for the Master of Science in Technology degree if it is their desire. Completion of the 15 hours in any one of the seven areas will certify that an individual has completed a program approved by the university. There are seven areas and each will constitute a certificate area of 15 semester hours: Industrial Management, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering Technology, Graphic Communications, Manufacturing Materials, Manufacturing Technology, and Technology Education and Training.

All graduate students must be admitted to the Graduate College and satisfy all admission requirements specified for the Department of Technology Master of Science degree program. Upon completion of the 15 hours, the Department of Technology will award the program certificate.

For information on the following program certificate, contact the Graduate Coordinator of the Department of Technology.
