Integrative Systems + Design (ISD) is a top ranked division within the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan that offers six pre-eminent interdisciplinary programs. Students may pursue their own interests by creating a customized pathway of study either online or on-campus from world-renowned faculty and industry experts among a mixed cohort of working professionals and full-time graduate students, which allows for a more rewarding and individualized learning experience.
Why Systems Engineering + Design
Systems engineering is the modern design process in industry and government that integrates the work of diverse specialists into complex products and services. Systems engineers touch everything from telescopes that orbit tens of thousands of miles above earth to the planes that fly every day. The program couples creative synthesis (design domain) and systems analysis (systems engineering domain) in a multidisciplinary approach that prepares students to lead and discover innovative solutions in complex engineered systems, blending design and engineering with human factors, organizational strategy, and lean thinking.
