Systems Engineering—Advanced begins with our three-day Systems Engineering--Introduction course and follows with a two-day practicum that provides attendees with the opportunity to reinforce and the material covered in the introductory course. In addition to providing, Systems Engineering—Advanced also provides 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 practice, discuss and reflect on systems engineering in the early life cycle. Attendees receive a copy of the presenter’s book Applied Systems Engineering.
