The systems engineering graduate programs offered by Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) and the University of Southern California (USC), are recognized throughout the world as two of the most outstanding programs.  Both universities are established leaders in system engineering graduate education and research.  The Department of Defense has ranked the programs in the top three in the nation.

This fact also has been acknowledged by The Boeing Company.  Missouri S&T and USC collaborate in providing Boeing engineering employees with state-of-the-art graduate education programs in systems engineering.  Since the inception of the program 13 years ago, 731 Boeing employees have received their M.S. degrees – 376 from Missouri S&T and 355 from USC.

Both Missouri S&T and USC systems engineering programs are based on similar core course requirements, which allows students to transfer a limited number of credits/units from either university towards the degree; however, this is not a joint degree program.  Students will need to select either Missouri S&T or USC as the university where they would like to earn their degree.

These programs are also open to non-Boeing engineers and on-campus students.  Missouri S&T currently has more than 20 companies and USC has more than 25 companies participating in their systems engineering programs.
