SSE Fellows

Academic & Industry Fellows

Fellows Program

The primary aim of the SSE Fellows Program is to ensure that our curriculum is rigorous and reflects the latest findings pertaining to the systems engineering discipline, while also representing the realities of the current business environment.  The SSE Fellows program has been setup to facilitate this program objective.  The selected academic and industrial fellows, as a function of their schedules and availability, will be called upon to:

  • Review and edit the School program structure, courses, and  course curriculum.
  • Review and support the School's research strategy and agenda.
  • Suggest Master's and Doctoral research projects.
  • Support the supervision of Master's and Doctoral candidates
