•    AGENDA
      • Systems Architecting and Engineering (SAE) Program has been the
        primary USC participant in CESUN since the creation of CESUN in
        2003.
      • Stan will give an update on the SAE Program.
      • Stan and Jim will describe the unique arrangement that the SAE
        Program has with the Epstein Department of ISE.
      • There are many other engineering systems-related activities at USC
        within the Viterbi School of Engineering and beyond.
      • Today we will introduce you to a number of these other activities and
        show how they are related.

   • Engineer Degree
M.S. in Systems Architecting & Engineering
            (MSSAE) Background



•   MSSAE program was created in 1987-8
     • Response to needs of aerospace and defense industries

•   Founded by Eb Rechtin, former Director of DARPA, CEO of
    Aerospace Corporation and VP of Xerox Corporation.

•   From 1994 to 2003 Elliot Axelband, former VP of Hughes Aircraft
    led the program.

•   Since 2003 Stan Settles has been the program director.
    M.S. in Systems Architecture & Engineering
               (MSSAE) Background



•   Inherently Multidisciplinary Approach
     • Domain specialization
          • Students specialize in a specific engineering discipline
             (e.g., Systems Engineer in Astronautics)

•   Professors and students must both have significant academic and
    industrial experience credentials
      • Most MSSAE instructors are from the management and
        executive ranks of aerospace and defense industries
      • Systems Architecting expects students to have a minimum of
        3 years professional experience
                 USC MSSAE Program




•   10 courses required for the Master of Science degree

      • 4 required core courses

      • 1 technical management course

      • 1 general technical course

                    Vision



•   The Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems
    Engineering will be a world leader in education, research, and
    innovation by creating, expanding, and communicating
    knowledge associated with designing, operating, integrating and
    improving products, processes and socio-technical systems. Our
    faculty and students will be leaders in the profession, shaping the
    future by contributing creatively and analytically to solutions of
    societal problems.
      Values and Principles:



•   As faculty and staff, we will:
     • Maintain an open forum where all may advocate their ideas
         in a transparent manner.
     • Give thoughtful consideration to points of view that are not
         our own.
     • Exercise patience to allow time for deliberation.
     • Give special care to protect minority interests.
     • Accept the collective will of the group.
     • Assist each other in achieving our collective and individual
         goals.
     • Commit to excellence in all aspects of department activities
         (e.g., teaching, research, mentoring, outreach, etc.).
     • Help each other be accountable for following these principles.
