Welcome to the
Total Ship Systems Engineering program at the
. The program,
since its inception in 1992, provides a broad based, systems
engineering and design oriented education, focusing on the warship
as a total engineering system, including needs, mission
effectiveness, hull, mechanical, electrical, and combat systems.
The Total Ship
Systems Engineering Program is intended to contribute to the
development of the Navy’s ship and systems design leaders of
the future. The program emphasizes the overarching need for
integration among and across technologies and traditional
disciplines to enable future warships to prevail against
increasingly challenging threats. Students from the Electrical
Engineering, Combat Systems Science and Technology and Mechanical
and Astronautical Engineering curricula are eligible to participate.
The program builds on the Masters Degree foundation of the eligible
students by introducing them to systems engineering methods as well
as various technologies important to the integration of modern
warships. The program culminates in a team-performed Navy ship
The student’s Masters Degree is the foundation of the program.
TSSE adds to this a grounding in Systems Engineering principles and
process and tools and techniques for integration of complex
systems. The whole experience is completed by the capstone design
project which gives the students the opportunity, in a benign
educational environment, to apply their systems engineering
knowledge in an interdisciplinary team to a realistic design.
