Certificates in Systems Engineering

Please note: Due to low enrollments, the stand-alone Systems Engineering program is being discontinued.  No new students will be admitted to the PSU Graduate Certificate program, but select SYSE courses for non-admitted students and for students from other PSU programs will be offered. The possibility of Systems Engineering being taken over by another Department is being explored.

 

PSU Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering Fundamentals (GCSE):

  • SYSE 591, Systems Engineering Approach;

  • EMGT 540, Operations Research in Engineering Management;

  • SYSE 573, Requirements Engineering;

  • One of 3 Modeling Classes:
    SYSC 514 System Dynamics
    SYSC 527 Discrete System Simulation
    SYSC 529 Process Modeling and Simulation


Admission Process for Graduate Certificates

The admissions process for the Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering Fundamentals is similar to the admissions process for the masters. Two Exceptions: All classes for the certificate must be taken at PSU -- courses from other institutions may not be used.  Above courses taken at PSU before being admitted to Grad Certificate program are acceptable (will not be included in 'pre-admission' llimit, as is case with the master's degree). Steps for Admission: see program admission
