Minor in Systems Engineering

You want to gain depth in your field of interest and learn problem solving techniques. You wish to acquire breadth outside of your primary discipline, and thereby complement your expertise.

The Systems Engineering Minor is for students broadly interested in Systems. The subjects required by the option are complementary to the student's chosen discipline. For instance, the Minor for a Civil Engineer would be designated as "Master of Engineering in Civil, with the Systems Engineering Minor". In line with the student's primary technical discipline, "Civil" would be replaced by "Mechanical", "Electrical" etc. It should be noted that the Systems Engineering Minor is not a degree in itself and students in the Minor must be registered in one of the Master of Engineering Programs within the College of Engineering.

Students electing the Systems Engineering Minor pursue two parallel streams. They are regular M.Eng. candidates in their primary technical disciplines; and they are also Systems Engineering students taking common courses and doing project work with Master of Engineering students from other technical disciplines. Roughly half of a student's program is set by the requirements of the home discipline, and the other half is common across all disciplines for students in the Systems Engineering Minor.
