Undergraduate Degree Information

Systems Science and Engineering (SSE) Degree

All candidates for a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree are required to satisfactorily complete a minimum of 40 course units. (A lecture or laboratory course meeting three or four hours a week typically carries one course unit. Some courses carry more than one course unit; examples include lecture courses with a substantial laboratory component.) These course units (also know ans CU's) are distributed amongst the following six categories: Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Other Electives, Social Sciences & Humanities, and Free Electives. The specific academic program of the student has to meet general University and accreditation guidelines and is determined in consultation with the student's academic advisor.

Each student must select an Application Focus--a type of system to which they intend to apply the tools of Systems Engineering.
