Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering

Format: Online

Program Description:

Systems engineering is a valuable discipline for master's level study because many engineers from various undergraduate disciplines find that they are deeply involved in designing and implementing complex systems. Master's level study in this area can support their career goals and give them tools for continued improvement of professional skills. This interdisciplinary online degree program provides students the ability to engineer complex products, processes, services leveraging a systems engineering approach. Systems engineering appears to be all things to all people. The official definition comes from the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE): "An interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation." The ASU online Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering (MEng) is designed to provide the opportunity for students to obtain a master's degree in engineering through distance learning online. The MEng is a practice-oriented degree that requires 30 credits of course work, including three credits of Applied Mathematics and three credits of Engineering Management. Up to six hours of credit is available for an applied project, and a culminating experience is required.
