Career and Academic Opportunities
The Master of Science in Systems Engineering is a natural follower of the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology because industrial and systems engineering are very related. This accelerated pathway will give students a unique preparation for advanced positions, such as project manager, engineering manager, senior systems engineer, etc. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, salaries for individuals holding an engineering master’s degree are 9 to 13 percent higher than the average salary for engineers with only a bachelor’s degree. This pathway will allow a student to complete their undergraduate and graduate studies within 5 years.
