Master's Program in Telecommunication Management

The Telecommunications Management Graduate Program (MS and Ph.D.) is an interdepartmental program involving the Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the Charles V. Schaefer Jr. School of Engineering. The Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management administers this program.

The Telecommunications Management curriculum addresses an increasingly demanding requirement of the telecommunications industry and business for technical expertise combined with business skills. The program provides students with an advanced technical knowledge of applied telecommunications integrated with a solid grounding in business management techniques. The backgrounds of students may be varied in terms of undergraduate degrees, but a prerequisite requirement of calculus is expected of all applicants. Stevens offers students who may lack this prerequisite a non-credit calculus course for telecommunications management (e.g., TM 500). A particular profile model of a student in this program is likely to be an individual who is, or aspires to be, a manager or supervisor in a large corporations or government agencies communications department. The student will typically be responsible for various aspects of planning, implementation, and management of the physical systems that satisfy the corporate requirements for voice, video, and data communications. The goal of this student is not to become an advanced systems engineer, but a management professional responsible for decisions involving large annual expenditures for acquisition, installation, maintenance, and management of telecommunications networks and systems.

Each sector of industry (government, regulatory, common carrier, financial, equipment vendor, consultant, R&D) will have corresponding profiles of professionals who need the same technical expertise and set of management skills. Vendor marketing people will want to extend their education into more serious marketing studies, just as a staff supervisor in a regulatory agency may wish to extend his/her studies into more extensive treatments of law and government. This degree program builds an advanced foundation for more specialized study while enabling professionals from all industry sectors to understand and interact with the corporate communications professionals who, in a market-driven industry, make the decisions on how businesses will implement telecommunications.
