Systems Engineering

Offering the Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering

Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary and structured approach to designing and deploying successful systems. The Systems Engineering degree blends engineering, systems thinking, and management topics. Systems Engineering addresses the business and technical needs of all stakeholders throughout the entire design process, from concept to production to operation to disposal. In this major, engineering techniques and a systems approach are combined to produce graduates who are highly valued for their problem solving and managerial skills.

Graduates of this program will understand the multidisciplinary fundamentals of engineering and possess strong team skills to solve complex problems that cross disciplinary boundaries. They will understand current technology, but also be creative thinkers and have the flexibility to change with technology. They will be able to create sustainable systems, to adapt to the new global context and be empowered for lifelong learning.

Graduates can look forward to employment in the defense, space, transportation, energy and telecommunications industries, as well as many other fields that look for the knowledge and skills necessary to engineer large and complex systems.

The Bachelors degree in Systems Engineering is a new program at SPSU. Freshmen may enroll in the program beginning fall semester 2007, sophomores beginning fall 2008, and so on. For further questions, please contact Dr. Renee Butler at rbutler@spsu.edu or 678-915-5414.
