Program Overview

Admission to the Systems Engineering program takes place upon the successful completion of the course MATH 110 with a grade of (C-).

Transfer equivalencies from ABET accredited programs (http://www.abet.org) or equivalent will be considered. We also accept transfer from non-accredited programs for the courses that do not fall under the prefixes CPEG, ELEG, ENGR, or CSIS.

The objectives of the STEG program is to graduate students who:

  • Communicate effectively with professionals from different areas of specialization.
  • Succeed in a systems engineering career by demonstrating leadership and ability to grow professionally in competence.
  • Apply principles of systems engineering, exhibit critical thinking in problem-solving, and take into consideration ethical and societal impacts.

By the time of graduation, Systems Engineering students will possess:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
