Multidisciplinary Programs


Key factors which determine successful competition in today's global environment are: timely and rapid response to customer needs, high product quality, and flexibility of operation. To achieve these objectives, the common element is an effective and knowledgeable organization oriented towed customer needs and requirements.

The Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering offers a 30 semester credit hour Master of Science program entitled Datacenter Systems Engineering.  The program is open to full-time as well as part-time graduate students, and will be offered on-campus as well as by means of the distance learning capabilities of the Lyle School of Engineering.

This program is specifically designed for professionals who are actively employed in the management of data and the extraction of useful information, computer networking, virtualization, and security.
