Systems Engineering is one of the most rapidly growing, sought-after skills sets in industry. This course introduces students to fundamental ideas of Systems Engineering that can be applied to virtually any project, whether it be a traditionally engineering focus project or otherwise. This course gives students some of the most popular, versatile, and valued ready-to-use Systems Engineering tools along the Vee-diagram covering key aspects of initial problem definition and defining of system requirements, thru systems design & architecture, to integration, evaluation & setting design targets, and risk identification & mitigation.

When Offered Spring.

Comments Homework and final projects are applied, when possible, to a student's concurrent design project such as either an external M-Eng or Senior design project. Students without a suitable project may use a default course project.

Outcomes
  • Students will be able to decompose problem statements into an objective, functional, and verifiable problem definition and proposed functional flow.
  • Students will be able to identify objective means for evaluating the performance of any valid problem solution to perform effective trade studies and justifiable design decisions.
  • Students will be able to access and evaluate project integration needs as well as project risk and mitigation strategies.
