Course description

This course introduces fundamental ideas of Systems Engineering and their application to the design and development of various types of engineered systems. The systems engineering technical design process is emphasized, following the entire Vee-diagram process from initial problem definition and defining of system requirements, thru systems design & architecture, to implementation planning, and & testing and evaluation. The course also provides an applied introduction to a variety of areas that are commonly a part of Systems Engineering including creating effective project teams, customer needs evaluation, mathematical tools for system analysis, control & optimization, risk analysis and mitigation, decision making strategies, project organization & management, and the system life cycle. The course requires students to combine their work in this course with an outside-of-course MEng project.
