The Master of Science in Systems Science & Mathematics is an academic master's degree designed mainly for both full-time and part-time students interested in proceeding to the departmental full-time doctoral program and/or an industrial career.
Systems Science and Engineering is based on an approach that views an entire system of components as an entity rather than simply as an assembly of individual parts; each component is designed to fit properly with other components rather than to function by itself.
The Engineering and Mathematics of Systems is a rapidly developing field. It is one of the most modern segments of Applied Mathematics, as well as an Engineering discipline. It is concerned with the identification, modeling, analysis, design and control of systems that are potentially as large and complex as the U.S. economy or as precise and vital as a space voyage.
Recent graduates have gone on to further graduate studies or to work in industry as Engineers, Data Scientists, and Software Engineers from such diverse companies as Amazon, Boeing, and The U.S. Department of Defense.
