Master of Science (Systems Engineering)
Requirements for systems engineering arising from the existence of a more complex project or system in which an interdisciplinary approach is required, especially between manufacturing engineering and electrical engineering for the realization of a successful system. This program focuses on the needs of manufacturing industries where knowledge in the interdisciplinary fields is needed. In order to achieve that, the program offers five sub-disciplines which are:
- Power Systems,
- Industrial Systems,
- Intelligence Systems,
- Communication Systems
- Electronic Systems
The core courses are focusing to systems engineering, management, analysis and optimization of systems, data analysis, software and entrepreneurial skills. The program provides graduates who understand the needs of consumers, functional requirements on the development stage, documentation requirements, and next, the design synthesis and system validation. Students of this program will be exposed to a variety of specialized courses in order to provide students with the knowledge and skills to improve their skills in their careers. In addition, they also have the opportunity to continue their education to a higher level.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES & OUTCOMES
- Manage and develop an organization to be more competitive in regional and global market using the knowledge of systems engineering and other related field.
- Lead and communicate effectively with peers of diverse background from within and outside organization.
- Uphold professional ethics in carrying out responsibilities, sensitive towards society and environment, and able to adapt to global changes.
- Improve their knowledge and skills via lifelong learning.
- Ability to integrate and generate in-depth relevant engineering knowledge in professional practices for the benefit of related systems engineering disciplines.
- Ability to formulate and develop research competently and perform research scientifically in systems engineering.
- Critically analyze problems related to systems engineering using the appropriate techniques and skills.
- Ability to adhere to professional ethics and act responsibly in executing work, sensitive towards the needs of the environment and the society.
- Ability to communicate effectively in oral and writing for scientific, industrial and general community.
- Ability to organize and adapt contemporary knowledge in systems engineering and manage information effectively.
- Ability to recognize entrepreneurship opportunity and determine business opportunities in systems engineering.
The Master of Science (Systems Engineering) program is offered based on a three semester academic year for Package-1 and four semester academic year for Package-2. Students are required to take two university courses, six core system engineering courses, Master Projects and choose four elective courses from five sub-field electives (energy systems, industrial systems, intelligent systems and communications systems).
