Systems Engineering, M.S., with an Option for a Technical Focus

Program Overview

Modern technological programs are characterized by high complexity, multidisciplinary considerations, and strong interactions between science, technology, business, and human civilization. Systems Engineering is the body of knowledge evolved to effectively manage such systems. Our program offers study options and technical focus areas that allow students to customize the program to meet their needs. The optional technical foci available are aeronautics and space systems; civil engineering; computer science; cybersecurity; electrical engineering; engineering management; mechanical engineering.


All courses are offered online and synchronously with the exception of course of the following technical-focus areas, which are in person: civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. In-person courses are offered in the LMU Westchester campus. All courses meet one evening per week for three hours.

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