The mission of the Technical Program Management (TPgM) graduate certificate program is to educate and prepare technical professionals to serve as program and portfolio managers and leaders. Students currently enrolled in the Technical Project Management (TPM) certificate program and Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) program gain a solid understanding of technical project management. As they are promoted in their jobs, they also need specific knowledge of the management of multiple technical projects and programs. This certificate is well suited to support workforce development for working professionals employed in the military, manufacturing, defense contracting, information technology, and other complex industries in the Charleston area.
