New to Systems Engineering?

Systems Engineering is the practice of creating the means of performing useful functions through the combination of two or more interacting elements.

Systems Engineering is very broad and can be applied to a wide range of areas.

From very general --  critical and systems thinking applied to high-level decisions that involve human and natural systems and system of systems.

To specific technical areas in the development of products, processes, and services that involve hardware-software and consumer systems.

What can the PSU Systems Engineering Program (SYSE) offer me?

An anywhere, anytime, distance-learning environment: All required SYSE courses and elective courses are online. Despite the online nature of the program, students do not lose out on the valuable peer and professor interaction that graduate classes provide.

The opportunity to study under leading experts in the field: Instructors are recognized around the world in the field of Systems Engineering and have many years experience at teaching online systems engineering courses.

New to PSU's systems engineering program?

Intended for working professionals, graduate-level scholarship prepares creative minds for superior leadership and technical skills. Ours was the first online master’s degree in systems engineering. This program is an engineering degree in systems engineering built on multidisciplinary courses in systems engineering, operations research, and systems science. SYSE students are part of a cohort, a group of students with similar interests taking the same classes. An individual may join a pre-arranged cohort.
