Systems Engineering and cyber security engineering represent Mason at Andrew Sage Competition


Mason’s Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research (SEOR) held its fourth annual Andrew P. Sage Memorial Capstone Design Competition on April 26.

This student-focused competition is an international assembly for the design of complex systems and a leading showcase for undergraduate design projects. These projects are from our capstone design courses or from baccalaureate, honors, or design-oriented graduate theses.

Our teams competed with groups from the United States Military Academy at West Point, University of Pennsylvania, James Madison University, Virginia Tech, and the College of Engineering and Computing's SEOR department. Categories included design, network security, healthcare, software security, decision support systems, device security, and transportation and logistics.

Teams from the Bachelor of Science in systems engineering and cyber security engineering represented Mason at the competition.

The event honors Andrew P. Sage, the founding dean of the Volgenau School, a pioneer and leader in systems engineering, a prolific author, and a dedicated educator.
