Systems Engineering Illustrative Programs

As you browse through the following pages you will find some illustrations of two-semester degree plans that combine coursework in systems engineering with electives chosen to emphasize different application domains. These sample programs are illustrative only. There are many possible elective courses that are not included in any of these samples. As illustrations, however, these sample programs provide an idea of the range of applications that are possible within the overall program. Please be advised that some courses offerings or pre-requisites may vary from year to year and the best recommendation is that you work with your academic advisor to develop a program that satisfies the degree requirements and meets your academic and career goals.
