In this System Engineering program offered by George Washington University, you learn to apply engineering techniques and mathematical methods to assist decision makers in designing and operating systems optimally. You learn to do this by observing, understanding, modeling and predicting the behavior of the systems that naturally arise in fields as diverse as medicine, defense, manufacturing and management.Systems engineering shares concepts with economics and computer science, so students frequently minor in one or both of these fields. Likewise, many of our students do a concentration in management or finance. The systems engineering program also offers a medical preparation option.
The program teaches you to apply quantitative techniques to assist decision makers in the optimal design and operation of complex systems. You will learn to use these techniques to define problems and to aid others in dealing with complex tradeoffs and uncertainties.
A broad array of options is open to systems engineers. With a systems engineering degree, you can work in the fields of communications, energy, environment, finance, health care, information technology, marketing, national defense, project management, software development or transportation.
