Compare 33 MSc Programs in Systems Engineering

An MSc degree, otherwise known as a Master of Science, is an advanced degree intended for scholars of engineering, mathematics, and natural sciences. Earning such a degree usually requires one or two years of study, and the writing as well as defense of a thesis.

What is an MSc in Systems Engineering? These specialized programs equip scholars with the knowledge needed to design, manage, and maintain complex systems. A highly interdisciplinary field, systems engineering combines the study of both mechanical and human dimensions to optimize the efficiency of a system and maximize the benefit to customers, users, and stakeholders. Students learn to coordinate teams, assess requirements, handle logistics, manage risks, and complete other tasks needed to successfully synthesize disparate parts into a working unit.

By getting an advanced degree in systems engineering, program participants can open doors to new career prospects. Systems theory can be applied in many fields, making program graduates widely marketable. Students also build risk management and critical thinking skills, which can be applied both in the workplace and in other aspects of everyday life.

Tuition costs can vary significantly between schools and countries. Prospective students should consult the websites of any schools they are interested in to learn more about fees, scholarships and payment plans.

After earning an MSc in Systems Engineering, graduates may find employment in various engineering fields. Systems engineers are sought after to organize and oversee the development of a structure, as well as to act as the interface between management, suppliers, customers, and other engineers. They may put their skills to use designing telecommunications networks, transportation systems, industrial processes, civil infrastructures such as energy grids, emergency service procedures, and more.

Universities around the globe offer programs in systems engineering. Online options may also be available for those unable to relocate or those who must work around a hectic schedule.

Wireless communications – connecting people and things

Digitalisation is here to stay. The ongoing digitalisation builds on an efficient communications infrastructure.

Communication is not only for humans anymore: the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet are the forerunners of a connected and programmable world where things are also able to communicate. Digitalisation will have an impact on a wide range of industries, such as energy, transportation, logistics and manufacturing.

Another prevailing trend in society and industry is robotisation. Modern inventions, such as self-driving cars and drones, strongly rely on highly efficient and reliable wireless communications while also utilising radio-based positioning and sensing/radar technologies. Wireless communications and radio frequency (RF) technologies enable the making of a wide variety of applications ranging from everyday consumer products to high-end industrial machines, robots and space science. The Internet of Things (IoT), 5G mobile communication networks and sensing/radar systems are the three most important application domains.... [-]
