  • Decision Analytics

    Businesses can't afford to make mistakes. That's why they're turning to specialists in operations research for solutions to complex, critical problems. The Lyle School is taking a scientific approach to analyzing problems and making decisions through the use of probability and statistics, optimization, and simulation to predict outcomes of different scenarios and zero in on the best solution.

  • Digital Integration

    Touching on every facet of computer technology, from research fundamental principles of language and architecture to overseeing the development of large-scale integrated systems, Lyle's computer science programs are designed to accommodate students with different interest in this all-encompassing field.

  • Process Strategies

    Students explore advanced developments in mechanical, thermal and fluid sciences, dynamic systems and controls, including such cutting-edge topics as green energy production, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and computer-integrated manufacturing. Qualified students are also encouraged to participate in faculty research projects.

  • Research Impact

    Environmental engineers are intimately involved in finding solutions to the ecological problems of energy, food production, manufacturing, transportation, water quality and availability, and waste treatment. They must deal with constantly changing environmental policies, mandates, and regulations, and they must be able to engineer innovative solutions.

  • Link Protocols

    As traditional communication systems converge on packet data technology and emerging economies build their own information infrastructures, the demand for services, spectrum, and bandwidth is skyrocketing.  With existing systems already teetering on the limits of capacity, meeting future needs will require breakthroughs in every aspect of communications technology.

  • Big Data

    With the advent of the internet: social media, search engines, e-commerce, and gaming, and the accessibility of "big data," modern society has become irrevocably linked to media that supports ready contact with mined information and the ability to control and influence the circumstances that guide daily lives.

    Offers degrees in both civil engineering and environmental engineering. Programs focus on planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and managing the nation’s physical infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, power plants, water and wastewater systems while also focused on conservation, natural resource recovery, air quality and pollution control, and environmental health.

    Offers degrees in computer science. Undergraduate and graduate programs focus on all aspects of computer design as well as software construction and applications.

    Offers degrees in electrical engineering covering core technology topics in areas such as biomedical engineering, communications and information technology, control systems, digital signal processing, and computer vision, lasers, optoelectronics, electromagnetic theory and microwave electronics, circuit and VLSI design.

    Offers degrees in systems engineering, engineering management, operations research, and management science. Programs focus on the study, design, and management of the technology rich systems that drive today's information-intensive organizations.

    Offers degrees in mechanical engineering. Programs focused on solutions to problems in design and manufacturing, robotics, automotive and transportation systems, energy production and distribution, as well as all other aspects of mechanical systems.

    Degrees offered in multidisciplinary studies are housed in the Dean's office to accommodate programs and courses not designated under a single discipline due to the exceptionally wide breadth of content and technologies in these programs.

    The Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering and the Edwin L. Cox School of Business offer a two-year, dual-degree in Master of Science in Engineering and Master of Business Administration, with as few as 68 credit hours.

    Drawing from existing courses in the Cox School of Business and the Lyle School of Engineering, SMU’s Master of Science in Engineering Entrepreneurship is designed to develop a cadre of engineers who look at the role of technology in society through a business lens, helping to fill the demand for managers and entrepreneur to start and lead new technology ventures. This highly selective 31-hour program is anchored is a yearlong project, the Technology Commercialization Studio, in which students can explore opportunities to innovative ideas into sustainable enterprises.
