The Masters of Science in Systems Engineering program is a non-thesis program. Students must earn 30 credit hours (approximately 10 courses). The program has a CAPSTONE project course: SYST 670: Systems Engineering Project. In the project course, students complete an industry-based SE project and write a related technical report.

The core curriculum consists of six System Engineering courses, shown below, that equip students with the processes, techniques, and tools required to practice systems engineering. The elective portion of the program is structured so that students can tailor the courses to meet their specific needs.

Required Core Courses: Eighteen (18) Credits

Electives in Systems Engineering and Related Disciplines:

Students are urged to confer with the Systems Engineering Program Director, Dr. Neil Rothman for selection of elective courses to ensure that graduation requirements are met.

Examples of appropriate breadth courses (up to nine (9) credits):

The student may take up to nine (9) credits (typically 3 courses) of technical breadth courses. Example breadth courses include:

Examples of appropriate depth courses: (at least (3) credits required)

The student must take at least three (3) more credits (typically 1 course) of technical depth courses. In addition to Systems Engineering, depth courses may be taken in related disciplines such as Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Computer Engineering. Example depth courses include:
