Data Science for Engineering Systems MEng program

NEW Data Science for Engineering Systems (DSES) track

Within the Data Science for Engineering Systems (DSES) track of the Master of Engineering (MEng) degree program, students gain expertise in data science and computational modeling tools for improving the sustainability and resilience of next generation societal-scale infrastructure systems. Students pursue curriculum, research and specialized training that prepare them for careers in sustainable and resilient design of energy systems, materials and structures, supply chains, and urban systems.

The Data Science for Engineering Systems track of the MEng program has two focus areas of concentration for students to choose based on their interests: Computational Modeling and Design for Sustainability or Resilient Infrastructure Systems and Services.


Within the DSES track, students must take 48 units in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering including:


Project studio class combines work in the lab with MIT faculty and seminars conducted by industry partners. Students will also receive guidance on data acquisition, analysis and computational modeling tools.
