Technology continues to change the face of society, making the work of humans easier, more efficient, and quicker. Business, industry and government truly thrive on the latest technology, but even the most up-to-date technological processes are useless without qualified professionals to implement and interpret them. With five (four undergraduate and one graduate) programs to choose from, Cal State LA's Department of Technology has a curriculum for any aspiring technologist. Students have the option of focusing their education on one of the following majors:
To be recognized as an institution offering premier programs for professional growth in the fields of technology management, technology application, and technology education.
To provide quality innovative programs that transform practitioners into knowledgeable technologists and leaders for our ever-changing technological world.
To produce graduates that will demonstrate a balance of technical and management knowledge.
To produce graduates that can demonstrate the skills needed to apply business practices, information technology, and other technical skills necessary to collaborate with, organize, and lead interdisciplinary teams.
To produce graduates that will demonstrate a cooperative spirit that supports the desire to pursue life-long learning and enable them to adapt to contemporary issues in the workplace.
