Systems engineers perform a central role in realizing an unmanned systems success; they are in great demand by industry and government.

Systems engineering applies to everything from a large unmanned system to computer hardware and software. It’s a big-picture view that considers every aspect of a project, from costs and environmental impact, to time lines and life expectancy of equipment. Because it encompasses many disciplines, it can help engineers from diverse fields better understand how to solve problems. This interdisciplinary degree program covers modeling, simulation, design, architecture, integration, and testing of complex unmanned systems and processes. It also supplies students with the underlying theoretical knowledge and practical experience applicable to unmanned systems. An unmanned systems engineering degree will provide expert knowledge so that graduates can apply for employment in engineering, design, development, integration and test of unmanned air, ground and sea systems. Graduates from our online degree programs will have opportunities as chief engineers, researchers, systems engineers and engineering managers.

The systems engineering course of study includes preparation for the entry level International Council on Systems Engineering’s Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) certification examination. INCOSE certification formally recognizes an individual’s competency in the systems engineering process, and is widely acknowledged as a significant accomplishment by practitioners in the field.

Internships are available to enrolled students.
