UC Irvine Extension has added a certificate program in systems engineering, with classes scheduled to begin in winter quarter 2012. Designed for students in technical and non-technical fields to develop professional skills in product development, service delivery and project management, the program prepares students for the Associate and Certified levels of the systems engineering professional exams (ASEP and CSEP, respectively).

Courses include four mandatory and three elective classes, of which students must choose two.

Required Courses
• Foundations of the Systems Engineering Process
• Systems Requirements Engineering
• System Design and Integration
• System Validation and Verification

Elective Courses
• Simulation-Based Engineering for Complex System
• Systems Engineering Tools and Methods
• INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional Certification Preparation

Students will earn a minimum of 15 academic credits, and some coursework is transferable to the Georgia Institute of Technology’s online professional master’s degree program in applied systems engineering.

Dave Dimas, UCI Extension director of engineering, sciences and information technology, said, “According to indeed.com, the national average salary for systems engineers is $95,000, and with the job market recently growing into other industry sectors – such as commercial products and services, transportation, utilities and energy – the possibilities are endless. The expanding complexity of providing products and services in a worldwide marketplace with a global workforce has fueled an increase in demand for systems engineers, and the Systems Engineering Certificate Program provides the … skills for professionals to excel in the industry.”

An informational session on the certificate program is scheduled for Dec. 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Prospective participants can register for the session online at extension.uci.edu/events.

The UCI Extension can also develop a customized version of this program for corporate training purposes; more information is available HERE.
