Technology & Research Methods Program Description
The program will prepare students to take roles as leaders in their chosen field of technology. The student will begin their path to success by building a solid foundation in research methods by learning from experts. The students begin with graduate­ level course work in advanced writing, research techniques, methodology, ethics, qualitative and quantitative research, data collection, applied statistics, data analysis, analytics, and data visualization that prepares them for doctoral studies. Students will then continue their path to success at the doctoral level by working with a research committee from Capitol Technology University to develop a research proposal in their chosen field of technology. Students work independently to conduct the study and produce a meaningful body of original research of publishable quality. In addition to a deep understanding of their chosen field of technology, students will be required to defend their knowledge of the legal, political, ethical, and social dimensions of their field of research. Ultimately, the program will prepare students to achieve high-level expertise and a more profound understanding within a specific field of technology.
