Engineering

AWC-UA STEM Futures Systems Engineering Program Details

Engineers build almost everything that we use in our daily lives. From the computer you are browsing this site on, to telecommunications equipment (cellphones, telephones, internet modems...), to cars, airplanes, medicines, agricultural machinery, satellites that orbit the earth or explore other worlds, tiny machines that deliver medicine to our bodies. Being an engineer allows us to contribute in so many wonderful ways to this greatest adventure of human invention and discovery.

At the heart of all engineering disciplines is a system. The system is the story of how  each and every component of a device is supposed to function. A cellphone is a cellular communications system, a solar power plant is a solar power harvesting system...Systems are a key component of engineering!

At AWC, we offer a Systems Engineering program in collaboration with the University of Arizona's Systems and Industrial Engineering Department. For more information, please visit:
