Introduction
  • This presentation provides a cornerstone for a
    Ph.D. in Systems Engineering at Southern
    Methodist University by benchmarking various top
    programs in the United States. Included for
    clarification purposes are universities that
    offer a Ph.D. in Systems Engineering in
    conjunction with other fields. These
    universities do not offer what SMU is seeking in
    a Ph.D. in SE.

  • The Doctor of Philosophy Degree
  • The Systems Engineering PhD is available to
    students interested in focusing their research on
    interdisciplinary work that transcends a specific
    engineering application domain to include areas
    such as information and control systems,
    optimization and mathematical programming,
    stochastic dynamic systems, applied probability
    and discrete event dynamic systems.
