Systems Engineering & Technology Management Degree

Manage projects and transform systems to achieve organizational goals.

Develop a higher-level view of your organization. Use proven methodologies in project management to design, build, and test complex systems. Perform market and customer analysis for profitability management. Through computer simulation, demonstrate process flow, optimization, throughput, and resource utilization. Then, advocate for the future use of modeling and simulation technologies.

Certificates Stack Into Degrees

You can combine three certificates into a customized master’s degree - one that suits your specific career and educational goals. After you complete your choice of certificates, finish an integrative project that brings together everything you have learned into a comprehensive graduate degree.

Improve Systems and Processes in your Organization with Critical Tools Needed to Take the Next Step

Every organization seeks to improve performance. Learn to apply analytical tools and decision science methods to business scenarios via systems models. Create discrete event simulations (DES) for modeling variation, finite human and physical resources, operating schedules, and process errors or defects. Test process improvements and determine if the desired outcome is achieved.

Then, make business case arguments for validated process change. Recommend strategies to improve organizational performance and tie your analysis to market trends, competitive pressures, and sales predictions. Practice different project management approaches and move from being a project participant to a project owner so you can realize your vision. 

Later, supplement these abilities with your choice of any two graduate certificates – three-course, nine-credit hour experiences designed around key techniques employed by effective leaders at work.
