Accelerated Masters Program in Systems Engineering

The Accelerated Master’s Program in Systems Engineering (AMP) is designed to enable working professionals to become systems thinkers and problem solvers through a unique blend of formal education integrated with personal work experience. AMP students attain a solid foundation in systems methodology and apply proven analytical tools and new technologies to “messy” problems in the face of uncertainty, risk, and environmental turbulence. Through their coursework and collaboration with classmates from diverse industries, participants find that they look at problems “with new eyes,” and they finish the Program well-equipped to support effective decision-making involving any large-scale complex system.
