Systems Engineering (SYS ENG)
SYS ENG 5000 Special Problems (IND 1.0-6.0)
Problems or readings on specific subjects or projects in the department. Consent of instructor required.
SYS ENG 5001 Special Topics (LEC 0.0 and LAB 0.0)
This course is designed to give the department an opportunity to test a new course. Variable title.
SYS ENG 5040 Oral Examination (IND 0.0)
After completion of all other program requirements, oral examination for on-campus MS/PhD students may be processed during intersession. Off-campus MS students must be enrolled in oral examination and must have paid an oral examination fee at the time of the defense/comphrehensive exam (oral/written). All other students must enroll for credit commensurate with uses made of facilities and/or faculties. In no case shall this be for less than three (3) semester hours for resident students.
SYS ENG 5099 Research (IND 1.0-15)
Investigations of an advanced nature leading to the preparation of a thesis or dissertation. Consent of instructor required. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
SYS ENG 5101 System Engineering and Analysis (LEC 3.0)
The concepts of Systems Engineering are introduced through a project. Students work in virtual teams.
