Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering (code COE_CT01)

Director: Mahyar Amouzegar

This 18-unit post-baccalaureate certificate is focused toward development and management of complex systems. Each such complex system requires a clear Systems Engineering Master Plan, a set of methodologies, appropriate tools, a rigorous requirements flow-down technique, and a comprehensive Project Management Plan to enable system design and project management for effective and efficient human interaction.


  • 1. Completion of an accredited baccalaureate degree in engineering or equivalent;
  • 2. Satisfactory completion of 18 units listed below;
  • 3. File a program application card with Admissions and Records, and file for the Certificate at least one semester prior to completion;
  • 4. The Certificate may be awarded concurrently or subsequently to baccalaureate degree.
