Systems Engineering brochureCapable systems leaders are in demand in the 21st century. Engineers, who have both the technical knowledge to design cutting edge systems and the skills to operate, and maintain them in an increasingly complex, globally interconnected business and policy environment.

As the largest provider of systems engineering education to the U.S. federal government and to industries worldwide, the master's in systems engineering from the School of Systems & Enterprises (SSE) teaches the multidisciplinary skills and approaches needed to architect, design and manage complex technical systems and processes throughout their life cycles.

"The systems engineering graduate curriculum is a perfect balance of systems theory and practice, and students have the unique opportunity to work on real-world problems."

Lana Brooke Miller, M.E. Systems Engineering

The program provides students with the right blend of engineering, technology and management training, and prepares graduates to become technical leaders who apply a systems approach to successfully navigate and manage complex systems. Our graduates are able to address systems integration, life cycle issues and systems thinking at the system and enterprise levels, in a market where globalization, quality, complexity and productivity are the business drivers.
