The traditional master’s degree in SEM is aimed toward the student who can enroll in classes offered in the daytime during the week. The broad curriculum of classes range from systems modeling to business economics. Faculty for the primary SEM courses are drawn from both the engineering and management schools, other UT Dallas schools and industry leaders with expertise in specific fields. Industry partners include Texas Instruments, Raytheon, Hewlett-Packard, Rockwell Collins and Ericsson.
The traditional master’s degree requires 36 hours of coursework, or 30 hours of coursework and a thesis. Typical students have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, computer science, math, physics, chemistry, economics or finance.
A program that allows undergraduate UT Dallas engineering students to earn credit toward a master’s degree in SEM is also available. Please visit the Fast-Track option to learn more about that program.
