Course Description

Address modern systems engineering principles through systems definition and requirements engineering to systems analysis and the design, implementation, operation, and technical management of systems projects, designed with substantial industry input. Explore a wide range of systems engineering principles and development methodologies. Become familiar with the financial and management issues associated with the development of complex engineering systems in a hands-on environment.

Who Should Attend

Government officials, government contractors, project directors, project advisers, engineering managers, systems engineers, software system engineers, and design and other engineers
