Brief Overview

The Systems Engineering Management program is an interdisciplinary program combining systems engineering with acquisition management knowledge and skills.  The program is intended to broaden the technical capabilities of officers who may have non-technical backgrounds so they are able to manage and lead acquisition programs for the complex combat systems the DoD needs.  Students in this program learn the systems engineering process from establishing system requirements through test and evaluation.  Simultaneously students learn how to manage, schedule, and budget programs as well as work with DoD suppliers through contracts to meet program obligations.
