Minimum MSSE Degree Requirements:  

  1. Completion of an approved curriculum that includes:
    1. A minimum of 36 quarter credit hours of 3000 and 4000 level courses, 16 of which must be at the 4000 level.
    2. A series of courses in systems engineering defined by each curriculum.
  2. Completion of a 12 quarter credit hour thesis course sequence and a thesis or a capstone project course sequence and capstone project report, depending on curriculum requirements.

This program assumes a well prepared, capable student as input (i.e. undergraduate degree in Engineering or other technical field). 

Focused SE Electives can include:  SE3910, SE4003, SE4353, SE4354, SE4930, SE4950, OS3401, OS4680.  It must be a different course from those included in the specialization track.

The four Specialization Track courses would depend on the specific sponsor’s desires given a homogeneous cohort (e.g. one entirely funded by SPAWAR, NAVAIR, NAVSEA, etc.).  For Open Enrollment cohorts, the four course tracks would be specified prior to the acceptance of applications for enrollment.
