Systems Engineering ManagementGraduate Professional Certificate   

Requires successful completion of all five (5) of the following courses:

CMGT 580 Intro. to Systems Eng. Mgmt.;  3 credit hours. (Spring 2019). This course will develop the student's understanding of the basics of systems engineering management through the life cycle of a system, the evolution of systems engineering and how it relates to program management, and to recognize its application in real situations and develop technical management solutions based on systems engineering principles. The course will consist of lecture, discussion, practical exercises, case studies, independent research and student presentations. Class discussion will require each student to participate in the presentation of the course material by sharing their understanding and interpretation.

CMGT 575 Intro. to Systems Analysis; 3 credit hours. (Fall 2018).  Introduces a scientific approach to decision making, usually under conditions requiring the allocation of scarce resources. Provides several of the most useful and realistic mathematical models available for solving engineering management problems including linear programming, transportation and assignment models, deterministic economic order quantity inventory models/network models.

CMGT 572 Organizational Theory and Behavior; 3 credit hours. (Fall 2019). This course develops organizational behavior knowledge, skills, and abilities by focusing on four key areas:

  • Part 1: Introduction and Ethical Foundations
  • Part 2: The Individual in Organizations
  • Part 3: Leadership and Team Behaviors
  • Part 4: The Organization

CMGT 562 Engineering Risk Management; 3 credit hours. (Summer 2019). Provides engineering and construction managers with an understanding of predicting, identifying, assessing, managing and communicating risk for engineering projects. Entails a fundamental review of probability and statistics practices so that they may be applied toward the study of risk, risk identification, risk assessment, risk evaluation, and risk management. Examines definitions, arguments and approaches from a variety of sources. To reinforce lectures, uses real world engineering examples from the defense, energy, and information technology industries where managers are forced to manage risk. Technical skills learned will encompass risk-based priority modeling, economic monetary value analysis, Bayesian revision, utility analysis, safety analysis, risk assessment, and risk management.

CMGT 570 Project Management; 3 credit hours. (Summer 2018).  Managing project resources and a project budget are key components of a Project Management and Control System. In this course students are required to use a simulation program to learn and demonstrate an ability to manage key resources of a project.  The course focuses on effective project/program management approaches and techniques which are typical to private sector engineering projects and major government system acquisitions. The dynamic aspects of project management are treated, including such topics as requirements assessment, program planning, contract administration, manufacturing management, configuration management, scheduling techniques, integrated logistics support, life cycle management, test and evaluation, standards of conduct and project team management.
