1 Page 0 Optimization Uncertainty Decision Analysis Systems Economics Masters of Engineering With Concentration in Systems Engineering A 30 hour graduate program that provides tools and concepts that Texas A&M engineering graduates need to fill both leadership and entrepreneurial roles in the 21 st century. The Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering Announces a New Graduate Masters Program

2 Page 1 Program Overview Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. Systems engineering considers both the business and the technical needs of all customers with the goal of providing a quality product or service that meets the user needs. Systems engineers play a vital role in solving some of the most pressing problems facing industry and government: Complex decisions with difficult tradeoffs Mega-projects with significant risk Critical infrastructure systems Environmental impacts Complex and interconnected business environments Large-scale product and process design Success in these environments transcends traditional engineering and requires expertise in engineering, business, economics, finance, and policy. Systems engineers are needed in a range of application domains and industries including: Transportation and logistics Supply chain systems Electro-mechanical product design Decision analysis Business strategy Large-scale system integration Project management Public policy Masters of Engineering Concentration in Systems Engineering A professional degree program that prepares graduates to solve difficult problems inside and outside traditional engineering.

3 Page 2 The Systems Engineering program is a problem- solving discipline that applies engineering principles to both traditional and non-traditional engineering problems. The goal is to impart a set of portable tools, concepts, and applications that enable graduates to model, design, and control natural and engineered systems for the benefit of society. The core coursework is a set of integrated decision making methodologies drawn from economics, optimization, probability, systems thinking and analysis, and decision analysis. Students round out their education by selecting electives in business, economics, finance, management, mathematics, public policy and traditional engineering disciplines. Systems Engineering Program Philosophy

6 Page 5 Master of Engineering (ME) Degree Requirements 1. At least 18 hours must be from Industrial Engineering and Systems Engineering 2. At least 9 hours must be from departments other than Industrial Engineering and Systems Engineering. 3. The total number of hours on the degree plan must be at least 30. 4. One or two written reports from either an internship, project course, or a special assignment within an area of Industrial or Systems Engineering. The chair of the advisory committee must be a member of the ISEN graduate faculty. A co-chair, if desired, may be from another department. The Master's committee must have a minimum of three graduate faculty members. At least one graduate faculty member of the committee must be from outside the ISEN Department. In addition to the above requirements, individual faculty may require additional courses as they deem appropriate. Detailed requirements and admission instructions can be viewed at:
