The Master of Engineering degree program offers an area of study in Systems Engineering.
This interdisciplinary program provides students the ability to engineer complex products, processes, and services leveraging a systems engineering approach.
Systems engineering focuses on defining needs and customer requirements early in the development cycle. Systems engineering appears to be all things to all people. The official definition comes from INCOSE-International Council on Systems Engineering:
"An interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation."
This flexible online "anytime, anyplace" program was designed with input from global corporations and targets professionals leading major complex systems development or programs at their companies. The key to this program is the amalgamation of several professional association and certificate programs:
A sample program of study is designed, but students can structure their electives based on interest. For example, develop electives across disciplines or concentrated in one discipline (ie: software, hardware). Once admitted to the program, students can collaborate with their advisor on the appropriate courses to achieve their academic goals and objectives.
The MEng is designed for working professionals and delivered entirely online to meet the unique needs of professional engineers. It is a practice-oriented degree.
Students must complete a total of 30 credit hours equaling 10 courses to earn a Masters of Engineering Degree.
A culminating experience is required and will be identified by the student’s advisory committee. It could be a final examination or the final report for a practice-oriented project (Applied Project IEE593).
