The Systems Engineering program from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University features two tracks to choose from: a technical track — focused on system design, analysis, and implementation — and an engineering management track — covering organization, process, and management. This will help complement a student’s professional experience with the confidence and skills needed to successfully lead complex engineering projects.

ERAU faculty members are subject matter experts who possess a wealth of Systems Engineering experience. With extensive backgrounds in managing complex, multidisciplinary, advanced technology projects, students gain valuable insight into Systems Engineering throughout their studies.

About Systems Engineering at the Worldwide & Online Campus

Students are exposed to stakeholders, requirements, enterprises, system design, development, quality, operations and maintenance and system disposal over several core courses and are afforded the flexibility to determine to scope of remaining coursework.

This flexibility is achieved through two track options - Engineering Management or Technical - and allows the student to choose four courses that best align with their personal and professional interests.

The program’s two tracks — technical or engineering management — give students the freedom to tailor their electives. At the Worldwide Campus, personal academic advising helps guide a student’s independent capstone project and ensures the coursework is in line with their career goals. 

A Capstone Project at the end of the program ensures that coalescence between the electives chosen and systems engineering fundamentals has occurred. So, whether a student wants to apply systems engineering in a specific domain like Unmanned Systems or Human Factors or prefers the project management or Leadership side of things, the MSYSE program is readily adaptable to those needs.
