SE Career Opportunities

Career opportunities in Systems Engineering (SE) are being driven by the increasing global nature of society combined with technology advances in communications, embedded systems, and computing. This, in turn, is driving the need for more sophisticated SE methods to manage this complex and interconnected world. SE graduates are able to specialize and take advantage of employment opportunities in strategic areas such as computational and systems biology, networking and communication network design and operations, control systems and robotics, manufacturing, production and service systems, and supply chain logistics.

Through the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE), the Division receives frequent feedback from our industrial collaborators (e.g., Analog Devices, Axcelis, BAE Systems, Celestica, Inc., Cisco Systems, Fulflex, JDS Uniphase, IBM, The Mathworks, Raytheon, Schlumberger) on current industrial needs. There is increasing evidence of a growing demand for systems engineers to address problems in software, communications, and military applications. Furthermore, there are entrepreneurial opportunities, particularly in the field of wireless networking and sensor networking, with companies like Millenial Net, Inc, Sensicast Systems, Crossbow Technology, and others.
