As a student in the global development masters program and with the Institute of Science & Technology for Development, you’ll be part of a revolutionary, transdisciplinary team of researchers and scholars that works to create change using specialized technical and focused social and business expertise. Each project is driven by people who are passionate about advancing the frontiers of knowledge and developing communities of today and tomorrow. Gathering teams that use varied professional expertise and methods, life experiences, and cultural wisdom and beliefs, you’ll become a facilitator of change as you collaborate to define and develop responsible, sustainable, and culturally appropriate solutions to great global problems.
The global MS program thus educates professionals who want to be innovators in the production of purpose-driven basic and applied knowledge, technological development, technology transfer, program management, program development, or activists. Our approach is one that promotes self-sufficiency as it pushes beyond the transactional concept of end user to the more pluralistic concept of community co-designer who understands the social responsibilities and implications attached to design solutions
No one technology, discipline, or individual can resolve today’s urgent problems in global technology and international development—it takes all of us to marshal the ideas and resources. Whether you have a BA or a BS, your skills will apply to the MS in science & technology for innovation in global development degree program.
