A watch phrase for the advanced degree programs offered at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School is" educate to innovate." One of the newest programs, the systems engineering and analysis curriculum, leads to a master of science degree in systems engineering and makes innovation and discovery its theme. Study subjects are selected by the board of advisors to the Wayne E. Meyer Institute of Systems Engineering, which is chaired by the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Wartime Requirements and composed of other flag officers and distinguished civilians. In the first year of this two-year project, a group of students designated as SEA-3 used a system-of-systems approach to engineer an architecture with an overarching set of requirements for conducting expeditionary operations in littoral regions, exploring interfaces and system interactions, and comparing current, proposed, and conceptual sea-based platforms against these requirements.
