ENSE 623, ENPM 643 System Engineering Design Project
This course brings together real
problems with the methodologies and tools of systems engineering in the
context of a specific research project pursued as the focus for student
work, both in teams and as individuals. The project, defined and introduced
at the beginning of the course, is chosen to contribute as research relevant
to the industry's state-of-art. Lectures and other resources provide the
domain knowledge needed for the project, including both technology and
systems issues. Students and faculty with expertise in the technology domain
of the project will participate actively in the course, which may be cross-listed
in relevant departments.
This course represents the culmination
of the systems engineering core sequence, an opportunity apply the principles
and methodologies of systems engineering to a major challenge in a specific
engineering applications domain. Students, faculty, and visitors with expertise
in the applications domain participate actively, sharing their knowledge
of the relevant technology and systems contexts, and providing a realistic
cross-disciplinary collaboration experience like that facing practitioners
of systems engineering in industry. Systems engineering students apply
their expertise in systems engineering principles and modeling to the research
project, thus bridging the gap between the power of systems engineering
and research methods and the challenge of real industrial needs.
