For questions, please contact the academic department at emgt@mst.edu, or syseng@mst.edu


The human systems integration (HSI) certificate program prepares students to have a significant impact on complex tasks involving humans. It is beneficial for army officers at Ft. Leonard Wood, defense contractors in the systems engineering degree program and others wanting to specialize in HSI. In our increased threat environment, the consequences of HSI failures will become even more critical. We can no longer afford to have a token human factors specialist added to teams addressing complex military issues. A more effective comprehensive approach is to broadly educate military personnel and defense contractors and others in HSI. An increased understanding of human performance will allow for improved performance across the areas of interest which will be gained from this certificate and will result in improved survivability in response to disasters and catastrophes.

Bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree, with a minimum of 12 months of professional employment experience, or a currently enrolled student in the graduate degree program at Missouri S&T. If you apply through engineering management, you need to meet their admission criteria.

Pathway to a Master's Degree

Are you a working professional who wants to earn your master's degree, but you don’t have time to take the GRE/GMAT? Then start in a graduate certificate program. Graduate certificates were designed as a pathway to a master's degree.* The admission requirements are more relaxed and credit earned will count toward your degree. Once you successfully earn your graduate certificate, you can continue with the corresponding master's degree without having to take the GRE/GMAT.
