Aims and Characteristics

Knowledge and Technology Management is vital to various aspects of business– from financing, development of products and services, and manufacturing to licensing and commercialization of technology so as to maximize companies’ effectiveness and efficiency.

The programme is designed with a broad-based and multi-disciplinary curriculum to suit professionals from various disciplines (management, IT, engineering, social work, library science, legal, education, health care, etc.) who desire to improve their competency in managing their workforces and operations. It is also suitable for engineers or technical professionals hoping to move into management roles, to devise workable and innovative solutions.

The programme provides a unique and flexible opportunity for participants, with diverse backgrounds to customise their learning in areas of technology and innovation based on their professional needs. The aims of the programme are to enable participants to:

  • Develop their competence in understanding innovation cycles and ultimately turn innovations into commercial successes;
  • Understand the financial and strategic implications of the development, acquisition, and implementation of knowledge and technology in an organisation;
  • Enhance their technical and non-technical awareness of knowledge and technological development in their chosen field of interest.



The programme is suitable for executives, managers and engineers in a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, service, public utilities and finance, with the responsibility of acquiring, auditing, managing, transferring and financing technology.

Students have the flexibility to vary their studies from semester to semester according to their personal aspirations (except for non-local students, who are constrained by visa requirements). For example, a student can study full-time in one semester and then choose to switch to part-time study in the next semester, and vice versa. Students can manage their own pace of study, subject to certain registration and assessment regulations.
