Systems engineering, in many colleges with engineering programs, has not yet been fully accepted as a discipline of study. It certainly does not have the emphasis given to the old and more widely established fields of electrical, mechanical, chemical, and nuclear engineering. Notable exceptions to this are programs at the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, the University of Arizona, George Mason University, the University of Maryland, and The George Washington University, among others. In some cases, systems engineering is tied into industrial engineering, operations research, or engineering management. As the demand for more formal training in systems engineering continues, it may be expected that more schools will focus on this need and build more substantial education programs responsive to activities called for in much of our industrial base. This is a relatively slow process, so many firms obtain nonacademic training in systems engineering by contracting with specialty companies that offer short courses that may be adapted to individual needs. Whatever the form of delivery, it can be safely predicted that the development of systems engineering education programs and options will continue for a long time.
