Systems Engineering
Systems Engineers bring together the efforts of a variety of engineering fields.  They develop, analyze, and often optimize complex systems. The systems might involve people, software, equipment, components, energy, and the environment.

Systems engineers work in just about every industry and often work in teams with other engineers. They are involved in healthcare, manufacturing, healthcare, and research and design. 

Those interested in a career in systems engineering should consider reviewing engineering programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited.

Systems engineering students take courses such as Simulation Methods, Circuits and Instrumentation, Electricity and Magnetism, Robotics, Engineering Economics, and Signals and Systems.

The following is a list of universities offering accredited degree programs in forest engineering. Be sure to check with ABET for updates and changes.

Students seeking forest engineering jobs enhance their employment opportunities by participating in internship or co-op programs offered through their schools. These experiences provide the students with broad knowledge and experience, making them more attractive candidates to employers. Many universities offer co-op and internship programs for students studying systems engineering. Click here for more information.
