Program description

Earn a Master of Science in Systems Engineering!Earn a Master of Science in Systems Engineering

The Master of Science in Systems Engineering prepares engineers to meet system design and integration challenges, with emphasis on technical, as well as cost and schedule requirements. Drawing on expertise and experience in the multidisciplinary areas of engineering, physical science, computing or mathematics, the systems engineering degree prepares you for advanced careers in modeling & analysis, systems engineering principles, computer networks, digital communications, software testing, decision & risk analysis, human–machine interface and operations research.

A key aspect of the Master of Science in Systems Engineering, and an alternative to completing a thesis, is a team-oriented capstone design project course. In this course you will be part of a team that formulates and solves an industry problem and submits a project team paper.

As a Master of Science in Systems Engineering you will undertake core courses and electives such as:

  • Systems Engineering Principles
  • System Modeling and Analysis
  • Decisions and Risk Analysis
  • Research Methods in Systems Engineering
  • System Life Cycle Cost Estimation
  • Human Factors in Man-Machine Systems
  • Communications
  • Computer Networks
  • Special Projects in Computer Engineering
  • Software Testing
  • Introduction to Software Architecture
  • Military Operations Research
  • Systems Engineering Design Project*
  • System Architecture Fundamentals
  • Enterprise Architecture Integration and Implementation
  • Enterprise Architecture Project Planning, Management and Documentation
  • Service-oriented Architecture Concepts and Theory
  • Systems Requirements Analysis

*Required for non-thesis students during the graduating semester.


The Master of Science in Systems Engineering also offers an interdisciplinary specialization, called Spacecraft Systems. While undertaking this specialization you will focus on electrical and systems engineering and learn advanced collaborative system design, in order to meet the most advanced aerospace industry needs.

Admission requirements

The admission requirements for the Master of Science in Systems Engineering are:

  • A bachelor’s degree in engineering, physical science, computing or mathematics
  • An applicant whose undergraduate GPA is less than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale may be asked to submit two letters of recommendation, a statement of objectives, a résumé and GRE results
