About

The Integrated Systems Engineering program at Northern Illinois University is designed for skilled engineers to maintain their competitive edge in the global marketplace, studying integration and analysis of various subsystems in product and process design, testing, manufacturing and engineering services.

Overview

Product and process innovation is critical in maintaining the United States’ competitive edge in the global market place. As products and processes are becoming increasingly more complex in nature, there is a growing need for engineers who can manage the interplay of integrated subsystems of these products and processes to ensure overall long term system viability.

 The College of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Northern Illinois University recognizes the increasing need for engineers who can integrate and analyze various subsystems in product and process design, testing, manufacturing and engineering services. A Master of Science in Integrated Systems Engineering prepares skilled engineers to meet such needs.

The Master of Science in Integrated Systems Engineering curriculum features the following specialization areas:

  • Mechatronics and Intelligent Systems
  • Biomedical and Healthcare Systems

Student Learning Outcomes

The Integrated Systems Engineering program leading to the Master of Science in Integrated Systems Engineering is designed to prepare students to: (1) develop innovative solutions to complex integrated systems engineering problems; (2) collect, analyze, and interpret data relevant to integrated systems engineering problems; and (3) apply analytical and computational skills to model, analyze, and design integrated engineering systems.

Advising Committee

A college-wide advising committee assists in placement of students in appropriate specialization areas. The advising committee is chaired by the associate dean of Research and Graduate Programs and shall have a representative from each engineering department. The advising committee also provides directions for students’ capstone course projects, master’s theses, master’s projects, or master’s papers to ensure a high quality of integrated systems engineering content.
