Requirements for the M.S. Degree in Information Systems Engineering

To receive the MS in Information Systems Engineering degree the student must obtain a minimum of 3.0 overall GPA in the courses taken to satisfy the requirements of this program. In addition, the student must satisfy all other requirements of the Graduate School not mentioned here. Following are the specific requirements that must be met to obtain the degree:

Each student must complete a minimum of 30 credits of graduate course work, consistent with program guidelines.

Each student must complete 15 credits of core courses (Systems Engineering Principles, Quantitative Computer Architecture, Data Management, Analysis, Modeling, and Design, Data Communications and Networking).

A three-credit course covering an integration topic is required for all students (e.g., ISE 511, CSE 580, or CSE 523).

The required courses total eighteen credits, including the fifteen credits of core courses and three credits of integration. A minimum of twelve credits of electives is required of all students, out of which nine credits must be taken in the area of specialization. In case of core courses waived for equivalent courses taken previously, the student must earn those credits through electives at the University at Stony Brook, bringing the total credits to a minimum of 30.

A maximum of six credits of graduate course work can be transferred for the courses taken elsewhere provided these credits were not used by the previous institution to award a degree.

Each student is assigned an academic advisor who must approve the coursework, area of specialization and sequence of courses.

Curriculum for the Executive Track: The executive track is designed primarily for the employees of one company (or a group of companies). This requirement is identical to the requirement of the standard program. The curriculum is common to all the students in the program and targeted to the interests of the sponsoring company (or companies).
