Nowadays engineered systems become more and more complex and more and more systems are complex due to the technological developments. At the same time there is a lack of good and systematically trained systems engineers who are able to guide, to coordinate and to manage the technical design, development, integration and implementation of those systems. One reason for this situation lies in the fact that the education and training of systems engineers is a quite difficult task. This is because systems engineering has also a lot to do with experience and with a certain way of thinking, the so called  systems thinking . Therefore, the  art & science of systems engineering cannot be taught only in a classical way but it must also be learned by applying the new knowledge continuously to practical problems and exercises. Due to this situation and the increasing importance of systems engineering capabilities for companies and future projects, a new Systems Engineering Master program is offered and will be explained in this paper.
