SE Degree Programs
The interdisciplinary, graduate-only Systems Engineering Division focuses on the analysis, design and management of complex dynamic systems that span the cyber, social, and physical domains. Students model, design, analyze and optimize human-made and natural systems. Our respected faculty hail from across the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Medicine and the Questrom School of Business, and work in close collaboration with the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE).
The program emphasizes cutting-edge research on analytical and computational methods aiming to design and manage human-made and physical systems spanning a broad range of applications.
PhD in Systems Engineering (SE)
Systems Engineering (SE) offers the Post-Bachelor’s PhD (MS/PhD) and the Post-Master’s PhD which both provide opportunities for research in automation, control and robotics, communication and networking, computational and systems biology, information sciences, and production, service systems and supply chain management.
Master of Science (MS) with thesis in Systems Engineering (SE)
The Master of Science (MS) with thesis in Systems Engineering (SE) is designed to provide advanced training in systems engineering for students focusing on a research-oriented career in academia or industry.
Master of Science (MS) non-thesis in Systems Engineering (SE)
The Master of Science (MS) non-thesis in Systems Engineering (SE) program requires students to establish the necessary foundation of systems engineering in addition to advanced systems engineering coursework and requires the student to complete a project one-on-one with a professor or in an approved class setting.
Master of Engineering (MEng) in Systems Engineering (SE)
The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Systems Engineering is a professional degree program designed for students focusing on engineering, consulting, or management careers in industry, business, or government. The program provides flexibility in course selection to allow students to gain sufficient depth and breadth in their area of concentration while complementing these with courses outside their concentration area.
Master’s Degree Internship Degree Option: Engineering with Practice
The Engineering Practice designation, when added to an MS or MEng degree, recognizes the power of combining rigorous academic coursework with supervised real-world research or industrial applications.
LEAP: A Master’s Program for non-Engineers
A unique program that enables students without an undergraduate engineering degree to earn a master's degree in engineering.
Master’s Degree Specialization Programs
Interdisciplinary specializations in Data Analytics, Cybersecurity, or Robotics add value to your Masters' Degree, giving students an edge in rapidly growing economic sectors that are in need of Engineers.
Minor in Systems Engineering
Undergraduates can earn a minor in Systems Engineering, where they learn about building, analyzing and managing electrical, mechanical, chemical, biological or logistical systems, among others.
