A Comparative Analysis of Systems Engineering Curriculum
Select a set of 5 to 10 systems engineering programs delivered at the undergraduate, graduate, or PhD level. Compare:
- Entrance Expectations
- Program Structure
- Curriculum Content
- Assessment Techniques
Include a comparison of the findings to the guidelines provided in the most recent version of the Graduate Reference Curriculum for Systems Engineering (GRCSE).
