At UVA Engineering, our mission is to prepare engineers to be leaders in their fields.
And the need for engineering leaders to help solve society's greatest challenges could not be more urgent. Professionals with advanced degrees in systems engineering from the University of Virginia, one of the world's most respected universities for research and education, are in especially high demand.
Systems engineers apply their expertise to a wide variety of challenges in a large number of sectors. UVA systems engineers, for example, are working on:
- Improving humans’ ability to work effectively in complex technical systems
- Machine learning and adaptive decision support systems for approaches to system-of-systems design for improving defense systems and manufacturing operations
Thanks to UVA Engineering's extensive alumni network and connections with corporations, government agencies, other universities and consortia such as the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing, our graduate students have access to multiple pathways to develop their careers.
