Systems Design and Management

Program Overview
Systems Design & Management (SM)
The Systems Design and Management program reflects the overwhelming need for West Point graduates who are ready to lead multidisciplinary teams. Our leaders will per-form systems thinking, systems design and modeling, and systems decision making to address complex, ill-defined problems characterized by global, political, social, military, economic, and technological challenges. The program trades depth in traditional engineering disciplines for a blended skill set that well arms leaders and managers.
