Alfred Smith, interim provost at Alabama State, says that “the master of science in applied technology is an innovative approach to addressing the technological needs in the workforce. The 33-hour program is designed for those with undergraduate degrees in technology, business, government, education, health-related fields, and other disciplines who are interested in designing, implementing and/or managing technology in varied environments.”
