Systems engineers apply low-fidelity modeling to understand, design, and manage complex systems over their life cycles. As management leaders, systems engineers utilize systems thinking and interdisciplinary skills from across all areas of engineering and management. At Michigan Tech, you will complete courses in the systems engineering core, as well as in a diverse range of engineering, science, and business topics. Threaded through the entire program is an emphasis on a systems dynamics approach to understanding complex, multi-disciplinary systems, and systems of systems.
The goal of the Systems Engineering Program is to develop graduates who can cross disciplinary boundaries, learn new topics quickly, and manage complex, engineered networks that are embedded in social and natural systems. If you have an interest in both engineering and business, Systems Engineering may be for you.
Customize Your Degree with an Individualized Plan
