Learn systems thinking and systems engineering to prepare for industry or graduate school.
Model an electric power grid or improve a product supply chain. Analyze complex problems, construct low-fidelity systems models, and use a dynamic systems model to make appropriate design decisions.
The minor in Systems Engineering can be useful to students majoring in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, engineering management, forestry, biology, and other areas where complex systems that span multiple traditional disciplines are utilized to collectively address a real world problem.
A minor allows an undergraduate student to specialize in a secondary discipline. A student may minor in any subject, provided the title of the minor differs from the title of the student’s major or major concentration.
A student interested in adding this minor should first express their interest to the minor advisor and then use the curriculum change portlet in MyMichiganTech to request the minor. See the Registrar’s Office website for more information.
Students pursuing this minor may be interested in joining the Systems Engineering Association at Michigan Tech, a student chapter of INCOSE,the largest professional organization for Systems Engineers.
