Master of Engineering
In a market where globalization, technology, quality, complexity, and productivity are the key business drivers, a Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering is the key to preparing engineers and scientists who can meet the increasing demand for efficiency, effectiveness and integration in engineering and business operations across a broad cross-section of industry.
The Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering consists of 10 courses (equivalent to 30 credits). Additionally, at least 3 credits and up to 6 credits, must be applied towards a thesis or a project. An undergraduate degree in engineering or related disciplines with a "B" average or better from an accredited college or university is generally required for graduate study in our Master of Engineering programs. Outstanding applicants in other areas may be conditionally admitted subject to the satisfactory completion of several ramp courses or introductory courses within the specific program.
The program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is designed to develop the ability to perform research or high-level design in systems engineering. The Ph.D. program consists of 54 credits, post Master's and minimum 15 research credits. For more details on the doctoral program, please visit our Doctoral Studies page .
The School of Systems & Enterprises offers many four course, 12-credit Graduate Certificate programs geared to practitioners and students who:
- Are interested in improving their current skills and technical competencies,
- Are considering new career paths within industry,
- Have been out of school for sometime, and want to resume their studies without committing to a full 30-credit master's degree program, or
- Already hold an advanced degree, but wish to continue their studies in a new or related area.
Credits earned in a graduate certificate can be applied toward a master's degree. For a complete listing of Graduate Certificates, click here.
