Request Info: Systems Engineering

Human-designed processes are becoming more and more complex. There is a growing need to integrate technology and people, mitigate risk, manage timelines, and optimize business practices. Luckily, there’s a discipline that covers all of this, and more: systems engineering.

Systems engineering is a holistic way of looking at people, procedures, and problems within an organization. With complexity of systems on the rise, systems engineers will remain in high demand for the foreseeable future. Typical Systems Engineer salaries at companies like Lockheed, IBM, and Rockwell are between $65 and $96k per year, while salaries for Senior Systems Engineers range from $73-$116k per year at companies like General Dynamics, IBM, and Qualcomm.
