The Systems Engineering (GSE) degree program provides an opportunity for students with traditional backgrounds in engineering to gain skills and knowledge necessary for career growth within the Department of Defense. This program is designed to allow students to define complex problems and apply analytical tools in order to demonstrate feasible solutions.
Active duty military, DoD civilians, DoD contractors, full-time U.S. Government employees, and U.S. Military Guard and Reserve members who are unit-sponsored (i.e. on orders) are eligible to apply.
A degree in engineering (e.g., Aeronautical, Astronautical, Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Industrial, Mechanical, Electrical, or Systems Engineering) or a degree in Engineering Science is required. A degree in science (e.g., physics), math, or computer science will be considered for admission as well, but the degree conferred will be a non-ABET Master of Science.
Prerequisite courses in Calculus-based physics and dynamical systems
Undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above
Must be a U.S. citizen
