Science and Technology Commercialization

Degree Offered
Master of Science in Science and Technology Commercialization

The Master of Science in Science and Technology Commercialization is administered by IC2 Institute, a nontraditional center for research and educational excellence. IC2 Institute previously established two technology commercialization centers for NASA and one for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. It also established and operates the Austin Technology Incubator.

The project-based Master of Science in Science and Technology Commercialization (MSSTC) focuses not only on general management knowledge and business skills but also on the specialized entrepreneurship, technology transfer, and commercialization expertise necessary to convert technology to wealth. Students in the program study all aspects of starting and managing entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial ventures, assessing a technology's commercial potential, and accelerating the movement of products and services from the drawing board to the marketplace.

The one-year executive program provides graduate education for midlevel and senior professionals while they continue their careers. Classes are generally held on alternate Fridays and Saturdays, with an additional week-long orientation at the beginning of the program year. The MSSTC program is offered both on campus and on-line. The coursework is rigorous and demanding, requiring a serious commitment on the part of the student and the student's employer.

The master's degree addresses both technology policy and technology enterprise.
