Career paths

Students working in lab

Systems design engineering gives you the solid technical background for many engineering fields, along with the freedom to be creative in choosing your own career path in upper years.

Some of our students go into engineering consulting or project management, while others go on to graduate school, taking on research and development work that pushes the leading edge of technology. Some of our graduates run their own companies, while others go on to degrees in business, law, or medicine. It really depends on the individual and what he or she wants to do.

Very few of our graduates found that they were limited by having a degree in Systems Design Engineering; if anything, they found it kept them flexible and opened doors to many opportunities. Students who are passionate about learning and exploring new options and who are willing to be flexible are always able to find a job – regardless of discipline.
