Program Overview

Systems Engineering is a disciplined approach to finding the right solution to the right problem: on-time, on-budget, supportable, and with minimal risk. 

The Certificate Program consists of four, fully-accredited courses delivered entirely online over a one-year period. The course content and projects will challenge the student academically and address current problems of interest to the Department of Defense. The courses are paced week-to-week by the instructors, but the students have great flexibility to do their coursework at times of their choosing during each week.

Interested in leading transformation in the military by helping to design and improve the systems of the future? Skills learned in this program will deepen your understanding of how the Navy builds and fights large systems.  They also help you to be a better problem solver, and those skills are useful in any assignment.
