The Department of Systems Engineering focuses research and curriculum on the fundamentals of systems engineering and management, with applications in areas including energy systems, healthcare systems, information systems and mechatronics systems.

The list of potential careers in systems engineering is extensive and includes the fields of engineering management, cybersecurity, power engineering, biomedical engineering, software engineering and many more. Defense and aerospace industries and research branches depend heavily upon systems engineers. The automotive industry also employs many systems engineers because of the inherent need for system integration and packaging within a vehicle. Essentially, systems engineers are highly sought-after in industries that require multiple specialists to execute large projects, particularly integrating subsystems in an overall project.

In addition to completing courses through the Jonsson School and the Jindal School of Management, systems engineering students benefit from interdisciplinary research labs, networking opportunities and student organizations.

Systems engineering encompasses a range of disciplines, providing a means for companies and institutions to solve their most complex problems. It involves students across engineering disciplines and includes a variety of other fields including business and the natural sciences. The Department of Systems Engineering at UT Dallas provides a focused yet powerful team of world-leading experts in systems engineering and inspires leaders across UT Dallas and the broader community through its Center for Control Science and Technology. It also attracts top students from all over the world, including a diverse population in Texas and surrounding states, all of whom contribute to the U.S. economy.

As a donor, your financial support will help sponsor students, not only to further advance leading research, but also to increase role models for diverse populations. Any amount will make a difference to maintain success in our department.
