Systems engineering and management (SEM) is an essential ingredient in today’s high-tech industries. There is a growing need for engineering and management training in complex systems that have many interdependent parts and significant organizational and/or societal impact. Increasingly, business requires that engineers be trained to be good managers and leaders. Likewise, business managers need a better understanding of technology and how to run large, multifaceted engineering projects.
As a joint program between the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and the Naveen Jindal School of Management, SEM features both technical and human-centered courses. The curriculum provides knowledge and skills to design, develop and manage complex projects requiring wide-ranging scientific and business competencies.
