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. As a cross-disciplinary program, it leverages the expertise of Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Management and Medical faculty from the College of Engineering, the College of Arts & Sciences, the Questrom School of Business and the School of Medicine. Graduate students are expected to complete a number of interdisciplinary courses and to fulfill the qualifying examination and dissertation defense requirements of the Program. In collaboration with the Center for Information & Systems Engineering (CISE), research areas pursued by applicants include, but are not limited to,
- Automation, Robotics, and Control
- Communications and Networking
- Computational Biology
- Information Sciences
- Production, Service, and Energy Systems
In conjunction with these interdisciplinary applications, students’ research activities focus on the use of methodologies such as
- Optimization methods
- Information theory
- Control theory
- Queuing theory
- Applied probability and statistics
How to Apply
We encourage students of limited means to apply for a waiver of the application fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org further details.
Program Planning Sheet & Handbook
The SE Masters with Thesis Program Planning Sheet (see Masters Handbook, Forms tab) provides a “snapshot” view of the curriculum that post-bachelors PhDs must complete. Post-masters PhD students refer to the core offerings in order to prepare for the PhD Qualifying exam. Post-bachelors PhD students will submit a final program planning sheet, with advisor signature, following the Prospectus Defense when you are eligible to apply to graduate with a masters while continuing PhD studies.
The SE PhD Handbook provides College of Engineering policies, program requirements, logistics and contacts.
