Master of Engineering - Systems Engineering

The Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering program concentrates on the IE courses that cover the science and technologies of decision making in a complex world. The optimization of the system rather than the subsystem is the overall objective of a systems engineer. Systems Engineering is concerned with improving the decision making process by utilizing statistics, simulation, optimization and computer science skills to enhance the design, control, operation and understanding of systems. This is a discipline that has shown rapid growth in both its development and recognition as a distinct field of engineering. Systems Engineering skills are becoming increasingly important within the local, industrial community as an aid to management seeking to respond to increasing competitive pressures. The program has flexibility in order to allow students to focus their course of study on various application domains. These application domains have common needs in many areas of systems engineering, but some unique ones as well.
