The program combines elements of traditional engineering, systems engineering, finance, decision analysis, and organizational management courses. Cadets will learn the methods, processes, and tools needed to understand and conduct meaningful decision analysis in support of complex systems. These large systems require an interdisciplinary approach rooted in technical, management, and leadership skills. Industry and domain-based concentrations are available, to include project management, logistics management, personnel management, defense systems, financial Systems, cyber security, management science, international affairs, and mathematical modeling. Systems and decision sciences graduates are ready to lead multidisciplinary teams, perform systems thinking and tackle complex, ill-defined, and interdisciplinary problems characterized by global, political, social, military, economic, and technological challenges. The Systems Engineering Program is ABET accredited. This major offers an honors track. To learn more about this area of study, visit the Department of Systems Engineering.

Cadets in this major have the opportunity to apply for a summer Academic Individual Advanced Development (AIAD) program, USMA-run academic enrichment experience. Past experiences have included work with The Army Science Board, the Environmental Protection Agency, Raytheon, Boeing, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, Research and Analysis Command (TRAC), and NATO. These opportunities allow cadets to travel around the world to place like France, Australia, Nicaragua, Germany, Honduras, Washington, D.C., Monterey, C.A., and Maui, H.I. Cadets can also join the Systems Engineering Club. To learn more about enrichment for this area of study, visit the Department of Systems Engineering, the System Design and Analysis Center or the Operations Research Center.
