The Master of Science in Systems Technology is geared for professionals in the field of Technology and Engineering engaged in developing systems to meet required specifications. The objective of the program is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and cutting-edge tools to develop solutions to complex systems problems in a diversity of industries.
Systems Technology utilizes broad-based mechanisms to address the analyses of goals and requirements needed to solve highly complex problems pertaining to both the economic and technical challenges of a total system. Systems Technology also addresses issues relating to the complete problem, often viewed as design-life issues, such as system implementation, operation, costs, design-life performance, personnel implications, and systems cost-benefit maturation.
Students pursuing a Master of Science in Systems Technology can select from either a 30-hour thesis option or 33-hour project option.
Because courses in this program will be available only through online distance learning it may not be available to all applicants. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and its online programs must be authorized in all states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states. (Visit the Office of Distance Learning to learn more.) International students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.
If you are an out-of-state student enrolling in an online program at UL Lafayette, you automatically receive the in-state tuition incentive. That means you pay the in-state tuition amount instead of the out-of-state costs.
The Master of Science in Systems Technology is administered through the Department of Industrial Technology in the College of Engineering. The College of Engineering at UL Lafayette was ranked among the country's best in the U.S. News & World Report's 2020 edition of "Best Graduate Schools."
