Program overview:
The course presents and discusses the fundamentals of Systems Engineering.

The main course objective is to enable students to:
–          understand and apply the main Systems Engineering processes, tools and techniques;
–          define systems requirements and performance;
–          design system technical solution options;
–          use decision analysis techniques and trade studies to support critical project decisions;
–          allocate system functions to sub-systems and define the relationships among the sub-systems;
–          control internal and external interface definitions, designs, and changes for products and product components;
–          manage project risks and opportunities;
–          use modeling and simulation throughout the system lifecycle.
The course will be based on a problem solving approach: starting from real case studies, students will be required to concretely apply the introduced Systems Engineering processes, tools and techniques.
