AWC-UA Systems Engineering Pathway

This is a 4 year Systems Engineering Bachelor of Science Degree program offered by AWC and facilitated by the STEM (Futures) Federal grant. Students take a combination of courses offered by AWC and University of Arizona courses taken via our state of the art ITN network.

As a systems engineering student at AWC, you will be part of a coordinated group of engineering students with many student benefits including: 

  • Student Benefits
    • Tutoring
    • Supplemental Instructors
    • State-of-the-Art Facility
    • Assisted Registration Process
    • Early Access to University of Arizona Advisors & Faculty
    • Use of Computing and Engineering Labs combining Theory and Application
    • Technical Core Courses
    • VariousTechnical and General Education Electives
  • So why study Systems Engineering? Systems are everywhere around us: Communications Systems, Solar Power Systems, Evacuation Systems, Agricultural Systems, Manufacturing Systems... We can envision our human civilization as comprising of systems!

    How can we improve these systems? First we have to mathematically model them, then we can optimize our model to allow our system to have the best possible yield. Systems Engineers model and optimize systems, they need to understand every working component in their system in order to achieve the best results delivered by the system.

    Systems engineers need a wide breadth of knowledge, as a result, minors in other engineering fields are encouraged. The University of Arizona Systems Engineering program offers minors in the following areas:

    • Bio-Systems Engineering - UA Yuma
    • Infomatics - UA Yuma
    • Material Science (Photovoltaics) Engineering - UA Yuma
    • Aerospace Engineering - UA main campus
    • Chemical Engineering - UA main campus
    • Civil Engineering - UA main campus
    • Electrical and Computer Engineering - UA main campus
    • Mechanical Engineering - UA main campus
    • Mining Engineering - UA main campus
