Advanced Systems Engineering Certificate Plan of Study

Certificate Plan of Study

Achieve a depth of knowledge in systems engineering practices and methods to contribute to and expand your company’s systems engineering expertise and capabilities. The Graduate Certificate comprises 4 courses (12 credits) and can be completed in 1 to 2 years of part-time enrollment. Four to six courses are offered every fall and spring semester in our fully online format that allows completion of the certificate quickly, from anywhere in the world.

Graduate Certificate Program Objectives

  • Engineers and technical managers learn how systems engineering practices, processes, and methods can be applied to the design of cyber-physical systems.
  • Graduates see the “big picture” of systems engineering from an organizational and process viewpoint and can apply basic design methodologies of systems engineering to cyber-physical systems.
  • Students engage in a multidisciplinary environment that promotes experientially-based development of expertise in model-based systems engineering.

Select 4 Courses

Group 1 Introductory – Select 1 Course Minimum (3 Credits)

  • SE 5000  Introduction to Systems Engineering
  • SE 5001  Model-Based Systems Engineering

Group 2 Modeling – Select 1 Course Minimum (3 Credits)

  • SE 5001  Model-Based Systems Engineering
  • SE 5101  Foundations of Physical Systems Modeling
  • SE 5201  Embedded/Networked Systems Modeling Abstractions

Group 3 Concentration – Select 1 Course Minimum (3 Credits)

  • SE 5102  Uncertainty Analysis, Robust Design, and Optimization
  • SE 5202  Foundations of Control
  • SE 5302  Formal Methods
  • SE 5402  Architecture of IoT
  • SE 5095  Special Topics
  • SE 5502 Capstone Project in Systems Engineering

Select the remaining 4th course from any of the three categories. The capstone project design course will provide an opportunity for students to implement and reinforce the learning from the previous courses to a real-world problem. The Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering is awarded upon successful completion of all four courses.
