edVirtus Systems Engineering Courses

Join Dr Ian Faulconbridge & Dr Mike Ryan for 3 or 5 days exploring Systems Engineering. The 3-day Introduction course provides attendees with an understanding of the discipline of systems engineering including the associated processes, tools, and management practices.

The course places systems engineering principles in the context of the other related disciplines involved in the delivery of technical projects and the system life cycle. The course is also the first three days of the five-day Systems Engineering—Advanced course, which follows on with further detail on the early stages of the system life cycle, particularly Conceptual Design.

The practicum then takes attendees through a number of design exercises that illustrate the application of systems engineering processes in a variety of contexts without assuming any prior knowledge of any particular development domain. The exercises provide the opportunity to practise, discuss and reflect on systems engineering in the early life cycle. Learn from the two domain experts who wrote the highly successful book on systems engineering! Attendees receive a copy of the presenters’ book 'Applied Systems Engineering'.
