CPE approves new engineering program at MSU

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) has approved a new program at Morehead State, the Bachelor of Science in Systems Integration Engineering (BSSIE).   

The first of its kind in the state, the BSSIE program combines science, physics and mathematics courses with hands-on mechanical and electrical engineering classes and labs to give students a robust interdisciplinary education that will prepare them for careers that require advanced systems integration skills.   

“The ETM department is well-positioned to offer the Systems Integration Engineering program, with most faculty members having terminal degrees in the engineering disciplines that support this program,” said School of Engineering and Computer Science Associate Dean Dr. Ahmad Zargari.  

The program was developed in cooperation with local industries through their participation in MSU’s Engineering and Technology Management Industrial Advisory Board. Comprised of representatives from more than 25 companies in the region, the board guided the creation of the program to meet the needs of industry in the area.   

The new degree program will launch in Fall 2020.
