Return to Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering Return to: Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering

Admission Requirements


All applicants must submit:

  • Application to Graduate Admissions and a $50 application fee. To apply online, visit http://graduate.lmu.edu
  • A transcript documenting the Bachelor’s degree in engineering or science from an ABET accredited program with a GPA of 3.0 or better
  • Three or more years of related work experience
  • Resume
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Essay discussing how the MS in SE fits into applicant’s career development

 

Promising applicants who do not satisfy these requirements will be considered for conditional admission and, when so admitted, must demonstrate satisfactory performance during their first year in the program.

Graduation Requirements


The overall minimum GPA required for graduation is 3.0. Students who receive a grade of less than “B” in any 500-level course or a grade of less than “C” in any 600-level course will not have the course count toward their degree.

The requirement for the MS in Systems Engineering degree is 11 courses, as follows:

Note:


Electives are scheduled only if a sufficient number of students sign up. With the approval of the Director, the above curriculum can be adjusted to meet the student’s individual educational needs.

Schedule


The student completing successfully two courses each Fall and Spring semester, and taking summer courses, can earn the MS degree in two years.

Registering into the courses is the student’s responsibility. A student is expected to make reasonable progress towards the degrees to remain in good standing at the University. A full-time course load is considered to be two courses in each of the Fall and Spring semesters.

Systems Engineering M.S. with Technical Focus in Civil Engineering (MS SE+CE) or Environmental Science (MS SE+ES)


The program is intended for those students who wish to learn the skills of Systems Engineering and apply them in either the Civil Engineering or Environmental Science field. This combined SE+CE or SE+ES program offers four tracks highly desired by the industry:

  • Water Resources
  • Air Quality and Industrial Track
  • Water Resource Management Track
  • Environmental Management Track

Admission Requirements


All applicants must submit:

  • Application to Graduate Admissions and a $50 application fee. To apply online, visit http://graduate.lmu.edu
  • A transcript documenting the Bachelor’s degree in any engineering discipline from an ABET accredited program with a GPA of 3.0 or better
  • Three or more years of related work experience
  • Resume
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Essay discussing how the MS SE+CE or MS SE+ES fits into applicant’s career development

 

Promising applicants who do not satisfy these requirements will be considered for conditional admission and, when so admitted, must demonstrate satisfactory performance during their first year in the program.

Graduation Requirements


11 courses are required for graduation, as follows:

Plus three (3) courses from the Civil Engineering and Environmental Science program, as follows:


Required Courses for MS SE+CE in Water Resources Track

Note:

The students who did not have an undergraduate fluid mechanics course must also take CIVL 504 Applied Fluid Mechanics , and this course must be taken prior to taking the three courses listed above. Typically most mechanical engineers have already had this course but science majors have not. This provides preparation for the Water Resource Sequence. Offered in summer.

Required Courses for MS SE+ES in Air Quality and Industrial Track

Required Courses for MS SE+CE in Water Resource Management Track

Required Courses for MS SE+ES in Environmental Management Track

Note:


The overall minimum GPA required for graduation is 3.0. Students who receive a grade of less than “B” in any 500-level course or a grade of less than “C” in any 600-level course will not have the course count toward their degree.

Systems Engineering M.S. with Technical Focus in Computer Science (MS SE+CS) or in Electrical Engineering (MS SE+EE)


  • M.S. in Systems Engineering with Technical Focus in Computer Science (MS SE+CS)
  • M.S. in Systems Engineering with Technical Focus in Electrical Engineering (MS SE+EE)

This combined SE+CS or SE+EE program is intended for those students who wish to learn the skills of Systems Engineering and apply them in either a Computer Science or Electrical Engineering field. Students will advance their knowledge of computer science and engineering and at the same time gain knowledge of Systems Engineering. Such dual-field experts are highly desired by industry.

Admission Requirements


All applicants must submit:

  • Application to Graduate Admissions and a $50 application fee. To apply online, visit http://graduate.lmu.edu
