Overview

Each Fall Term, the Lyle School of Engineering offers dedicated groups just for employees of Raytheon studying toward the Master of Science, Systems Engineering and the Master of Science, Engineering Management degrees. Additionally, students are recruited for the Weekend Format program in Manufacturing Systems Management each Fall and Spring.

Systems Engineering

The M.S. Systems Engineering is a requirements-driven program developed for high-potential engineers and managers with an undergraduate technical degree who are advancing in industry or government or running their own company. 

This program is designed to develop expertise for development and management of systems (products and services) that satisfy customer requirements considering engineering, technology, environmental, management, risk, and economic factors by viewing the system as a whole, over its life cycle using systems engineering principles, methods and practices.  “Systems thinking” skills are developed which foster more effective practice for the engineer or engineering manager within the business enterprise. The objective is to provide individuals with the capability to effectively manage the development of complex systems in an ever-changing environment.

New group launches are subject to sufficient enrollment requirement of at least 12 admitted students.

Engineering Management

The SMU Lyle School of Engineering’s Masters of Science in Engineering Management degree is a 30-hour program developed for individuals with an undergraduate engineering or technical degree who are—or will be—rising through management or starting their own company. The program is designed to impart essential knowledge for today’s and tomorrow’s technology-driven world.

“Engineering Management is the art and science of planning, organizing, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities which have a technological component. Engineering managers are distinguished from other managers by the fact that they posses both an ability to apply engineering principles and a skill in organizing and directing technical projects and people in technical jobs.” (ASEM)

SMU’s MSEM program develops this expertise through core courses in management, finance, economic analysis, production, and accounting, complemented by pace-setting, innovative electives in information engineering, global perspectives, and entrepreneurship. This well-rounded approach prepares individuals for success in a technology-based world and its challenges and opportunities.

New group launches are subject to sufficient enrollment requirement of at least 12 admitted students.

Manufacturing Systems Management

The Master of Science with major in Manufacturing Systems Management offered by the Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering at SMU provides a balanced approach to management skills and technical expertise necessary to succeed in this critically important field. Lyle’s Weekend Format program in Manufacturing Systems Management serves the needs of the part-time student.

Requiring 30 hours of coursework consisting of 10 courses, the program is designed to explore all aspects of the manufacturing cycle.

SMU’s MSM program is carefully designed to meet customer requirements, delivering the ideal blend of live Web conferencing and recorded lecture via streaming media to busy professionals at home and across the nation. For each 3-hour course, students receive 40 hours of instruction in a total of five 8-hour sessions during the semester in which they are enrolled. The five class sessions are split into four hours of recorded lecture and four hours of virtual conferencing with the professor and other students in the program. Participants have Internet access to lecture content one to two weeks prior to a Web conferencing session conducted live every other Saturday, following the off-weekend schedule of the Fortune 100 defense corporations with operations in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. Students take only one course at a time with Course A held during the first half of the term and Course B during the second half. Students may take either one or two courses during the semester, setting their own pace for career advancement in a rapidly evolving business climate.

Customized Schedule

At Lyle, we are cognizant of students from Raytheon wanting to balance the cost of a degree from SMU against the tuition assistance offered by their employer's Educational Assistance Program. To do so, the schedule of ten courses for a group of Raytheon employees is spread over three calendar years in order to balance the out-of-pocket expense of the student against the generous funding provided by their company.

For a Raytheon dedicated group starting in a Fall Term, the schedule would be as follows:

Location

Class meetings for a group solely made up of Raytheon employees take place at the SMU in Plano campus which is located centrally in the Collin County area where most Raytheon employees live and work. 

Please Note: Raytheon employees who wish to make faster degree progress may still opt to join a open enrollment group instead of this Raytheon-only group. Those groups take four courses per calendar year and finish their degree in five semesters.

Groups meet on Saturdays every two weeks from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. during the academic semester
