Core Engineering Sequence


Program Overview

The Systems Engineering Core Engineering Sequence (CES) consists of three courses. Cadets enrolled in the systems engineering core sequence start classes in the first or second term of their Cow year. The three course sequence must be completed in consecutive semesters. The first course introduces you to the systems approach to solving problems. You will learn "systems thinking" and apply the Systems Decision Process (SDP) to real world problems. The second course introduces you to many decision-making models and techniques used to analyze a wide range of personal, military or financial decisions. In the final course, cadets integrate project management skills with those skills developed in the first two courses to complete a capstone project.
