Graduates with a Master of Science degree in Systems Engineering and Management find positions as systems engineers, systems managers, systems engineering managers, program managers, project managers, directors of systems engineering, and more in a wide range of industries.
The MS in SEM degree also allows for specialization in several industries prominent in the DFW Metroplex including aerospace, space and defense; information assurance and cyber security; telecom and information technology networks; healthcare systems; enterprise systems; energy resources infrastructure; transportation; retail and consumer goods; and financial services. The videos on the right show support for this program from several local companies in these sectors, such as Raytheon, ELCAN, Ericsson, TI, and HP. The Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and the Jindal School of Management have developed relationships with these and other companies in the area to support the recruitment of Systems Engineering and Management graduates.
Students in the traditional master’s program have three career offices to help them secure internships and full-time employment: the campus-wide UT Dallas Career Center; the School of Management’s Career Management Center; and the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science Industrial Practice Programs.
