Participate in real time or on your schedule
As an online systems engineering graduate student, you can access CSU's curriculum in a variety of ways. You may choose to "attend class" online while the lecture is happening live on campus (synchronous learning). Or, if it works better for your schedule, you can choose to watch a webinar-style version of the lecture later (asynchronous learning).
Study online, but not alone
The online learning environment and course structure of this program encourages interaction with your classmates and professors through group projects, email, and designated online office hours. You even have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussions during live lectures.

Join a thriving systems engineering community
The Systems Engineering Department within CSU’s College of Engineering is just that: a dedicated university department focused on leading-edge systems engineering research and education. Department faculty are both talented instructors and world-class researchers in the field. In addition, many of CSU’s engineering professors have extensive industry experience, which they bring into the classroom and curriculum. Many of our students are also leaders in their workplaces. You will be learning alongside engineers from organizations like NASA, Lockheed-Martin, Woodward, Inc. and ULA, just to name a few.
