Available exclusively online, the MESyE program can be completed entirely via distance.
Systems engineering describes the highly interdisciplinary domain of scientific, technical, and managerial skills needed to evolve, verify, field and support an integrated and balanced set of system solutions designed to satisfy customer needs. The UCCS Master of Engineering Systems Engineering (MESyE) program provides a broad understanding of the roles of a systems engineer and a thorough understanding of process implementation -- from needs analysis and system requirements to trade off studies and system design.
The UCCS MESyE program is designed to enhance value in today's engineering workforce by focusing on the roles of a systems engineer.
The minimum requirements for regular admission into the Master of Engineering - Systems Engineering program are as follows:
A student who lacks one or more of the above courses may be admitted on a provisional basis, but will normally be required to satisfy the requirements after admission.
Program of Study
The degree program consists of 30 semester hours of coursework comprising 24 hours of core program courses and 6 hours of electives.
Core Requirements (24 hours)
Elective Courses (6 hours) Student will choose two of the following courses
All systems engineering students are required to accomplish a capstone systems engineering project to demonstrate mastery of the overall program objectives. The project is administered through SYSE 5450, which is part of the prescribed course sequence. The capstone course is normally scheduled in two parts – a two semester hour class during Fall term, followed by a one semester hour class during Spring which is devoted to project documentation and final presentation. Project topics are decided between the student and the advisor and will normally reflect a real world industry or community need and/or interest.
Once accepted, a student will be required to complete a Plan Of Study. The Plan Of Study must be coordinated with and approved by the Graduate Program Director. Students should ensure an initial Plan of Study is accomplished prior to program start. The Plan will also record the transfer of any credit applied toward the degree program; this transfer of credit must occur prior to the semester in which the student will graduate.
Course work must be completed with a 3.0 GPA or better, and all course work applied to the program (including any transfer credit) must have been completed no earlier than 6 years prior to degree completion. Up to 9 semester hours of graduate work may be transferred from an accredited graduate program, provided course work has not been used for any other degree, the grade earned for the course is B or better, and the course content has been approved by the program director.
