Innovation is key for business and economic competitiveness. Technology Management is the interdisciplinary field that integrates science, engineering with knowledge of business and management for developing practices, technological advancement, and wealth creation.


Complex business environments require flexible leaders with multidisciplinary knowledge to take risk and flexible role. I&TM program enables the graduates with Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) degree to work in higher-level positions for example as Chief Technology Officer (CTO), or Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) in large high-tech corporations, local and international organizations, government departments, regulatory authorities and public institutions, multi-size business organizations and startups, pursuing innovative research and product development with understanding of the business component of the technology. Thus, the special courses of UNESCO/UNITWIN Interregional Network on Research and Eucation in Biophysics, Biotechnology and environmental Health provide the graduates an opportunity to develop their skills of work in teams of different sizes of diverse professional experience and multidisciplinary backgrounds on life sciences, biophysics, and business related issues emphasizing on creative problem solving and technology planning and management.
