Major in the 'People-Oriented' Engineering Field
Mason's Systems Engineering and Operations Research programs are interdisciplinary, drawing from such areas as:
- Computer Science.
- Operations research.
- Human factors.
You can earn a BS in Systems Engineering as an undergraduate; as a graduate student, you can select from three masters’ programs: Systems Engineering; Operations Research; and Data Analytics Engineering, with a concentration in Predictive Analytics.
You can also pursue a PhD in Systems Engineering and Operations Research.
Each program stresses different aspects of systems design.
Bringing a Global Perspective to Complex Challenges
Core courses unite these diverse threads to provide a global understanding of how individual engineering disciplines fit into the development of large, complex systems and how mathematical and computer modeling help inform the processes you'll study.
We stress teamwork, collaborative learning, analytical skills, practical problem solving, and oral and written communication.
|Our goal is to produce graduates who can:|
Apply critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, and principles to projects.
Apply systems engineering and operations research methods, processes, models and tools.
Work effectively as a member of multi-disciplinary teams.
Behave professionally, ethically, and responsibly.
We also establish a foundation for life-long learning. You'll be inspired to improve your skills and learn new techniques throughout your career, putting you a step ahead of your peers.
