Bachelor of Science in Systems Engineering (Minor: Engineering Management/ Industrial Engineering)


Program Description

The University of Mauritius (UoM) and the University of Arizona (UA) have partnered to offer an innovative dual degree program in Systems Engineering minor Engineering Management or minor Industrial Engineering. This program is designed to provide students with the science and fundamentals of mathematics necessary to analyze and design complex engineering systems.

Students in system engineering bachelor's degree programs use engineering principles to assess a given industry and create models that improve functionality. Students engage in research that allows them to develop innovative methods of tackling problems and improving operations. Systems may include computer networking, product assembly, and transportation. System improvement can benefit virtually any industry, therefore graduates can work in a wide range of fields, including bio-medicine, telecommunications, transportation, information technology, manufacturing, and the public sector. Careers in systems engineering might involve research, training, testing and system cost planning.

Upon completion, students will graduate with a dual degree from both the University of Mauritius and the University of Arizona.
