Systems engineers apply low-fidelity modeling to test ideas and user flows. They use this method to understand, design, and manage complex systems. Analysis takes place over a system life cycle. As management leaders, systems engineers use systems thinking and interdisciplinary skills. Their knowledge spans all areas of engineering and management. At Michigan Tech, you will complete courses in the systems engineering core. You will move on to a diverse range of engineering, science, and business topics. Threaded through the entire program is an emphasis on a systems dynamics approach. You will form an understanding complex, multi-disciplinary systems, and systems of systems.
The Systems Engineering Program aims to develop graduates who can cross disciplinary boundaries. Develop agile learning skills for new topics. Social and natural systems embed complex, engineered networks. You will manage those networks and systems. If you have an interest in both engineering and business, Systems Engineering may be for you.
Customize Your Degree with an Individualized Plan
Design roller coasters. Use nanoparticles to treat cancer. Design underwater habitats for humans. At Michigan Tech, you can create your own path by customizing your engineering degree. We will help develop a curriculum to meet your focus. We combine faculty expertise from across campus to prepare you. You are free to pursue your chosen field or continuing education.

My Story: Nick McCole, MTUengineer
This choice has opened many doors for me. Systems Engineering is a field I plan on staying in for the foreseeable future. This summer I worked as an electrical/systems engineer intern at Milwaukee Tool. In addition to Milwaukee Tool, I’ve been fortunate to have internships at Ford, Mercury Marine and Boss Snowplow.
