The Systems Engineering program at George Washington University provides broad knowledge of the "systems approach" for designing and managing large-scale engineering systems throughout the life cycle, with faculty and students exploring case studies and methodologies from NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. corporations.


Key facts

The Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering offers Ph.D. and M.S. degrees, as well as two professional degrees in systems engineering. Graduate students can pursue their degrees in one of two focus areas: operations research and management science or systems engineering and integration.

Students pursuing a master’s degree acquire excellent skills at the cutting edge of systems engineering. They also benefit from George Washington University's many contacts with industry and governmental leaders. Students may choose a thesis or non-thesis option for the degree.

The professional degree program is designed for students who want in-depth study in their field beyond a master's degree but who seek to concentrate on applied subject material rather than on basic science. This post-master's program provides advanced study in preparation for pragmatic application and leads to the degree of engineer or of applied scientist.
