Principles of Engineering System Design

Course Description

Systems Engineering is a top-down, life-cycle approach to the design, development, and deployment of large-scale engineering systems, processes, or operations to meet the effective needs of users and stakeholders in a cost-effective, high-quality way. Systems Engineering typically involves an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful engineering systems.

Course Objective

The objective of this course is to introduce the concepts of system engineering to the students and to utilize these concepts in the design of complex engineering systems.  The course will cover the broad areas of system engineering, functions of system engineering, and design of engineering systems.
It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting the requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem. Modelling of complex engineering systems and failure analysis of systems also will be covered along with case studies.
