A required course in the Systems Engineering Certificate Program
Systems engineering has wide application across a growing number of industries to effectively develop and manage technology solutions for both traditional and complex systems. There is also an increasing need for systems engineers to have an awareness beyond basic technology solutions and to account for the sociotechnical impacts of technology viewed from an enterprise framework of external stakeholders. This course will introduce students to systems engineering concepts and processes, and the role of the systems engineer in the engineering and product lifecycles. Key systems concepts to be addressed include user needs and stakeholders, requirements development, functional and physical architectures, specialty engineering considerations, transition to design and integration, and verification and validation activities. The role of systems engineers as stakeholders in project management activities including project planning, risk management, configuration management, technical reviews, and product lifecycle processes will also be discussed.
