Students entering the Datacenter Systems Engineering program at Southern Methodist University with an undergraduate degree other than in engineering or one of the physical sciences or mathematics may be asked to articulate the necessary courses.



The purpose of the Datacenter Systems Engineering curriculum from Southern Methodist University is to impart the necessary breadth and depth of knowledge of datacenter cloud infrastructure engineering needed by professionals preparing to fully participate in leadership roles as either managers or technologists.

Qualified students with undergraduate degrees in engineering, computer science or one of the physical sciences or mathematics are required to complete 30 credit hours (typically 10 courses).

The two additional Group II electives may be selected with adviser approval from the offerings of the Lyle School of Engineering, Cox School of Business and Dedman College (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Statistics departments). The student is responsible for ensuring that the prerequisites for the elective courses have been met.

The core courses, encompassing the activities of the datacenter, reflect the breadth of the technology as it is conducted in the industry. The Group I course concentrations serve to develop or extend competence in one or more of the technical fields of interest to the student. The Group II electives enable the student to build interests broadly by selecting courses under the guidance of the academic adviser from the Lyle School of Engineering or the University as a whole.
