About Mechanized Systems Management
Mechanized Systems Management (MSYM) will help you develop technological problem-solving skills to the professional level. In addition, this program will help you develop systems analysis and business skills. This is important because all businesses involving equipment have sets of machines, and a business does best when its whole equipment system is optimized, rather than just individual machines. Employers have learned how important it is to the bottom line to keep their equipment singing, and demand for graduates who can work in these areas is high—and salaries are too!
