The University of Utah is proud to offer a strong portfolio of educational programs led by its strategic efforts to strengthen the regional workforce in Systems Engineering and adjacent disciplines. Current opportunities can be largely grouped into three major categories: Systems Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Engineering Management (SIME). A variety of degrees, certificates, and courses are available to train students in these areas. The SIME website focuses on showcasing these educational programs to current and future students. For opportunities in research, more information can be found on the websites of partner academic departments and their associated faculty.

Interested in Systems Engineering?

Engineered products, services, and processes have become exceptionally complex with interactions between humans, software, electrical components, mechanical devices, nature, and a host of other elements. Failing to account for these interactions can cause catastrophic losses of life, property, and money. On account of those risks, Systems Engineering has been established as an interdisciplinary approach that enables the realization of successful systems through the identification of needs, requirements, testing, troubleshooting, integration, verification, validation, and deployment.

In the discipline of Systems Engineering, the U's current offerings include:

  • Master of Science in Systems Engineering Degree (on-campus or online)
  • Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering (on-campus or online)
  • Undergraduate Certificate in Systems Engineering (on-campus)
  • Emphasis in Systems Engineering for BS Mechanical Engineering students
