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. The institute 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 scientific knowledge and 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 conception to market introduction and growth.

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