The Applied Graduate Systems Engineering (ASE) program is offered by the Graduate School of Engineering and Management, Department of Systems Engineering and Management www.afit.edu/ENV. The ASE program confers a Master of Engineering (ME) in Applied Systems Engineering and is available to part-time distance learning (DL) students only. ASE is nominally a 36-month program, depending on class availability and student course load. Program requirements for ASE are similar to the Graduate Systems Engineering (GSE) program with the key difference being the replacement of the thesis. In lieu of a 12-credit thesis, ASE students must complete at least two engineering analysis courses and one capstone project.
For more information about online/distance learning (DL) SE programs, or about general DL opportunities and application procedures, please visit AFIT Office of Extension Services, www.afit.edu/DL/.
Degree Required: Any engineering degree (Aeronautical, Astronautical, Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Industrial, Mechanical, Electrical, or Systems Engineering) or a degree in Engineering Science. A degree in science (e.g. physics), math or computer science will be considered for admission to a non-ABET Master of Science program on a case-by-case basis. Courses in calculus-based physics and dynamical systems (circuits or engineering dynamics) are required.
Mathematics Required: Ordinary Differential Equations
Test Required: GRE - 153V/148Q (within the last five years)
GPA Required: Overall - 3.0; Mathematics - 3.0; Major - 3.0
Waivers to the above criteria may be granted (on an individual basis) by the Department of Systems and Engineering Management. Therefore, individuals whose academic credentials fall below any of the above criteria may still apply.
Program Educational Objectives
The program takes students with traditional engineering backgrounds (mechanical, electrical, computer, aeronautical, etc.) and produces graduates who understand, and can effectively use, the tools and techniques of systems engineering and systems science. Within a few years after graduation, graduates are expected to:
The following student outcomes are those competencies that students are expected to achieve by program completion. Graduates will:
Degree Type: Master's
Delivery Method: Distance Learning
