Systems Engineering Management
The Systems Engineering Management (SEM) certificate is designed for program managers, project managers, and lead systems engineers involved with conceiving, defining, architecting, integrating and testing complex and multi-functional systems. Particular emphasis is placed on the modern engineering enterprise characterized by geographically dispersed and multi-cultural organizations. Accordingly, the role of e-collaboration is also examined, and the traditional project and program management concepts are re-examined in this context. The participating students are also introduced to the concept of the "extended" enterprise and the delivery of a value chain solution. Relevant subjects such as leadership, subcontracting, and partnering are also reviewed. Additionally, the human, financial, organizational, and systems integration skills necessary to make project teams more productive are addressed in this graduate certificate offering. With a common systems engineering process serving as the framework, courses in project management, costing and acquisition, decision and risk analysis, and the organization as a system are integrated to form a certificate that will bridge engineering, management, and systems integration.
Audience: Program Managers, Project Managers, and lead Systems Engineers involved with conceiving, defining, architecting, integrating and testing complex and multi-functional systems.

- EM 612 Project Management of Complex Systems
- SYS 625 Fundamentals of Systems Engineering
