Solve the Challenges of the Healthcare Systems with Engineering Acumen
As the health care industry continues to evolve, health care systems engineering has emerged as a discipline that presents unique opportunities to traditional systems engineers. When you pursue a Healthcare Specialization as part of your M.S. in Systems Engineering at University of Houston-Clear Lake, your solid technical foundation will be augmented with knowledge that will help you improve the operations of any health care facility.
Specialized Coursework for a Specialized Field
The Healthcare Systems Engineering course provides detailed insight into the health care delivery system including patient flow, health data informatics, patient safety and the health care supply chain. In the Healthcare Systems Analytics and Optimization course, your core systems engineering skills will help you solve problems in scheduling, optimization and decision analysis. And after completing the Healthcare Systems Integration course, you’ll be equipped to design and implement processes for key healthcare systems like communications, sensing and automation, security and robotics.
