Systems Engineering

Our Program

The 30 credit hour online master's program in Systems Engineering (SYSE) is a concentration packed in our Interdisciplinary Engineering (MSE/MS) degree This program was created for professionals who wish to build a competitive edge with graduate-level knowledge of systems engineering, from which they will be able to apply state-of-the art methods in designing, analyzing, and controlling the next generation of complex systems that respond to rapidly changing environments. The concentration aims to develop professionals who are both well-grounded in interdisciplinary engineering as well as prepared to create and execute trans-disciplinary processes that result in engineered systems that are responsive to stakeholders' needs.

Application areas include next-generation air traffic management, sustainable buildings, intelligent healthcare devices, healthcare delivery systems, flexible manufacturing integrated with design, next generation transportation systems, and next generation intelligent systems.

You'll learn from the same renowned faculty who teach on campus at Purdue and graduate with an MSE/MS. We offer both thesis and non-thesis options.

Purdue University's online graduate engineering program is consistently ranked in the top ten programs by US News and World Report.

Systems Engineering online master's students will be able to choose from a course menu featuring classes in: 

Introduction to Systems Systems Thinking
Systems Engineering Theory/Architecting Models-Based Systems
Human Factors Automotive Systems
Cyber Security Decision Analysis
Analytics  

Online Plan of Study Details

The MSE/MS master's program offers a wide range of flexibility in course options. After you begin your studies at Purdue, an academic advisor will help you create a Plan of Study (POS) to best fit your educational needs and career goals. Every POS varies based on student interest, time, and course load. For planning purposes, an example POS for the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) with a concentration in Systems Engineering degree is available, as well as an extensive course menu that lists classes available over the next several years.
