"Attaining the designation “Doctor” was my childhood dream, something not accomplished before by anyone in my family. The rigor of the GW Doctor of Engineering program was by far the most challenging and humbling experience I have ever had. I gained new-found respect for academia and for self-motivated research, through which I gained the ability to think critically under intense pressure while maintaining a full-time professional obligation, community obligations, and my family responsibility as a married father of two."
— Stanley Osuagwu, Corporate Quality Assurance Manager, D.Eng.
"Classes were on target. The professors wanted me to learn and get something out of classes. Dean and staff were very helpful. Overall, the program is first rate. The clear benefits are the degree, and the insight I gained pursuing it. I am at Arlington Research Institute: my master’s is applicable as we move research to potential commercialization. I definitely recommend the program!"
— Michael McNair, Robotics Division Chief, M.S. Systems Engineering
"Thank you to the entire GW SEAS-OP staff for graciously assisting me with administration, registration, and scheduling throughout my matriculation as a GW SEAS-OP student. Your team made the experience easy. Academically, I am empowered with a top-notch SE education as a recipient of the globally respected GW master’s degree in SE. I am excited to transition into my new career as a Cyber Systems Engineer, and proud to be a Colonial!"
— Robert Monroe, Jr., Computer Scientist/Capabilities Development Specialist, M.S. Systems Engineering
"Through the GW master’s in systems engineering program I have a deeper understanding of the entire systems engineering process. The Project Management series was particularly useful as I transitioned to a new position as a Project Engineering and Site Manager. The critical thinking skills acquired from the program have helped me to ask better and more penetrating questions prior to making decisions that affect our site. Also, the ease of [taking] online courses from our work location just couldn’t be beat!"
— Reinhard Sandrock, Project Engineering and Site Manager, M.S. Systems Engineering
