Introduction to Systems Engineering

Course Group: 
Systems Engineering

COURSE OVERVIEW

The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the processes and management practices associated with the systems engineering discipline. The course is ideally suited to engineers who are new to the discipline, as well as to project managers and project staff who work with systems engineers. The course highlights how systems engineering principles can be applied to technical projects, and what products to expect from the systems engineering effort. The course also provides the first three days of the five-day course: Systems Engineering Practice.
