​​​​​​​​​Systems Engineering Program Educational Objectives, Student Outcomes, and Historical Enrollement Data

The Systems Engineering Program at West Point is accredited by

the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,


Program Educational Objectives

The SE Program seeks to prepare future Army Officers for productive and rewarding careers in engineering or related professions and in service to the Nation.  Within four to seven years of graduation, Systems Engineering majors will have:

  1. Effectively led interdisciplinary teams to solve complex problems while fostering an organizational ethos that promotes the professional, moral, ethical, and respectful treatment of all. 
  2. Analyzed, designed, implemented, and maintained systems throughout their lifecycles.
  3. Convincingly communicated engineering solutions and analysis to leaders, both orally and in writing, to enable sound decision-making in the presence of uncertain, biased, or confounding influences.
  4. Approached problems holistically while recognizing each system as a whole, with its fit and relationship with the environment being primary concerns.

Student Outcomes

The Systems Engineering Student Outcomes (SO) facilitate the achievement of our PEOs.  They describe what we expect our graduates to know and to be able to do at the time of graduation.  The SE Program SO's are:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply both analysis and synthesis in the engineering design process, resulting in designs that meet desired needs.
  3. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experiementation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  4. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  5. An ability to recognize ethical and profressional responsiblities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  6. An ability to recognize the ongoing need for additional knowledge and locate, evaluate, integrate, and apply this knowledge appropriately.
  7. An ability to function effectively on teams that establish goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, nad analyze risk and uncertainty.
