DU at Lockheed Martin

Engineering Graduate Certificates & Systems Engineering Master's Degree

Three graduate-level, specialized certificates are available from the University of Denver’s Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science to Lockheed Martin employees. Each certificate requires completion of 16 credit hours of coursework and may be taken in any order. These certificates may be completed individually or combined to form a Master of Science in Systems Engineering. Courses will be taught weeknights after business hours at Lockheed Martin’s Waterton campus.

  • Fundamentals of Space Systems

    This Specialized Graduate Certificate requires completion of (a minimum of) four graduate level courses, or 16 QHs. Three courses, 12 QHs, are required courses, and one course, 4 QHs, is an elective course. Completion of this certificate provides expertise in fundamentals of Space Systems Engineering, Space System Design and Integration, and Space Project Management, where Space Systems include, at a minimum, spacecraft and missiles. 

     

    Objectives and Collective Outcomes

    This certificate is recommended for those new to the space industry and early career space employees seeking a greater understanding of space systems and systems engineering. Courses associated with this certificate introduce the student to an overview of space systems engineering, its major subsystems within a space system, appropriate design considerations, and project management. Courses focus on: fundamentals of space and missile systems analysis, design and operation; ability to design, model, analyze and evaluate space and missile systems; understanding of hardware and software architectural layouts, and different architectural configurations; mastering understanding of component integration to meet performance project management.

     

    Required Courses

    ENMT 4000:Space Systems Design I (4QHs)

    ENMT 4010:Space Systems Design II (4QHs)

    ENMT 4100: Systems Engineering (4 QHs)

     

    Recommended Elective Courses (Choose at least one course)

    ENMT 4225: Systems Models, Simulations, and Tools (4QHs)

    MGMT 4304: Project Management (4QHs)

    ENGR 4865: Design, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (4QHs)

  • Systems Design and Architecture

    This Specialized Graduate Certificate requires completion of (a minimum of) four graduate level courses, or 16 QHs. Two courses, 8 QHs, are required courses, and two courses, 8 QHs are elective courses. Completion of this certificate provides expertise with emphasis on support for proposals, after contract award and through critical design reviews, as well as in System Design and Integration.

     

    Objectives and Collective Outcomes

    This certificate is targeted for System Architects and Systems Engineers working the frontend of programs and proposals. It centers on: understanding the state-of-the-art in complex (e.g. space and missile, etc.) systems, how they are designed, modeled, controlled and evaluated; ability to tackle challenges related to mission technical design and mission analysis; mission specific architectures, including modularity and re- configurability; requirements decomposition and resource allocation; risk analysis, validation and verification and fault management; integrated control and diagnostics; network analysis for control and communication purposes; and software-based toolsets to achieve required objectives.

     

    Required Courses

    ENMT 4285: Complex System Architectures, Models and Tools (4 QHs)

    ENGR 4790: Systems Engineering Requirements (4 QHs)

     

    Recommended Elective Courses (Choose at least two courses)

    ENMT 4225: Systems Models, Simulations, and Tools (4 QHs)

    ENMT 4270: Fundamentals of System Electrical, Mechanical and Software Design (4 QHs)

    ENMT 4280: Design for Feasibility and Resilience (4 QHs)

     

  • Systems Applications

    This Specialized Graduate Certificate requires completion of (a minimum of) four graduate level courses, or 16 QHs. Two courses, 8 QHs, are required courses, and two courses, 8 QHs, are elective courses. Completion of this certificate provides hands-on expertise in system design, integration, implementation and testing.

     

    Objectives and Collective Outcomes

    This certificate is targeted towards system applications with emphasis on implementation and testing. The courses focus on: system analysis, synthesis and models for decision making; electromechanical integration; component- and system- level validation and verification; fault-tolerance, reliability and feasibility analysis and design for resilience as attributes for developing trusted systems; and designing systems with performance guarantees in the presence of faults and failures. Projects will be related to the professional student’s domain of expertise.

     

    Required Courses

    ENMT 4275: Applied System Electrical, Mechanical and Software Design(4 QHs)

    ENGR 4680: Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis for Engineering Systems (4 QHs)

     

    Recommended Elective Courses (Choose at least two courses)

    ENMT 4270: Fundamentals of System Electrical, Mechanical and Software Design (4QHs)

    ENMT 4280: Design for Feasibility and Resilience (4 QHs)

    ENGR 4620: Optimization(4 QHs)
