Enterprise Systems Engineers study and improve upon the interaction of data, applications and systems within the context of the business' rules and logic. Enterprise Systems Engineers have a large role in the development and integration of new information technologies in enterprises, such as the burgeoning area of the "Internet of Things" (IoT) and the DevOps/Continuous Integration process. Whether through configuration or management of software, servers, storage resources or networks hardware, enterprise systems engineers are responsible for management and protection of the companies' information assets, customer private information and intellectual property. This includes the ability to understand and manage large system integration, adaptability and agile evolution, configuration management, capacity and performance planning, reliability, security, and the continuous integration of new capabilities.


Regis University's Master of Science in Enterprise Systems Engineering program is designed to provide students with the foundational, managerial and technical skills and knowledge to design, integrate, protect and maintain sophisticated information systems within organizations. This degree program is designed for programmers, developers, engineers, and others who aspire to move into senior IT positions and expand the value they bring to their organization.

The degree focus is on the effective and sustainable use of IT systems in business operations, the organizational and community impact of IT systems, and management of IT systems for productivity and competitiveness. This includes a view of the interaction between all the elements and phases of each system or subsystem during its lifecycle, with the goal to ensuring the overall system’s performance, reliability and resilience are maintained while unintended events are minimized.


In line with Regis University's Mission and Values, the Master's in System Engineering degree program enables students to evaluate enterprise information system solutions for their sustainability and impact on the broader community. With these skills, graduates are able to examine the social welfare, environmental welfare and community level economic impacts of the organizational systems they work directly with to ensure that the use of these systems has a positive impact on the community in which the organization exists.


The MS in Enterprise Systems Engineering program outcomes were developed and approved by a team of subject area experts and friends of the program. These program outcomes are designed to help students build a body of knowledge that will enable them to take on senior technical lead and architecture roles with respect to enterprise systems in their organizations. The outcomes span systems theory and thinking, analysis and design skills, management skills, and the ongoing maintenance of systems competency. The MS in Enterprise Systems Engineering Program will develop graduates who will:

  • Use systems thinking to evaluate and utilize enterprise system resources to enable organizational goals.
  • Reconcile conflicting client requirements within the relevant system and client constraints using systems thinking techniques.
  • Evaluate system solutions for their impact and sustainability in social, environmental and economic terms.
  • Apply system lifecycle models to enterprise resources.
  • Analyze risks associated with use of enterprise systems technologies and information resources.
  • Apply current security and information assurance processes, techniques, and tools to protect enterprise and community assets.
  • Evaluate systems for their total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Analyze enterprise processes and model them using modern process modeling techniques, including flow charts and data flow diagrams.
  • Evaluate networking and system interactions for efficiency and their impact on the organization and community.
  • Communicate systems information to other enterprise system stakeholders.
  • Display leadership capabilities and contribute to the effectiveness of a multi-disciplinary team.
  • Apply professional ethics in decision-making and engineering practice.

Graduates of the Enterprise Systems Engineering program are sought after technology professionals with the skills to rapidly integrate new information technology resources (hardware, software) with legacy systems, develop new custom applications, oversee the management of systems support services and coordinate new IT initiatives within all departments of an organization.
