Systems Engineering: Course Description

Learn to develop a systems engineering plan and apply the proper tools to solve systems problems. Take cost, maintenance, performance, management and value into consideration when developing plans to determine whether or not the system is effective. A brief history of systems engineering is also included in this OpenCourseWare, which is provided by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'s School of Engineering in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Students learn the basics of systems design, ways to develop new designs and how to test a systems' effectiveness. This course covers the basics of developing engineering systems designs that are cost effective, sound and environmentally friendly. It is taught by Professors Dr. Don Clausing, Daniel Frey and Pat Hale, who all have many years of industry experience.

Lectures, notes and access to exams are available online. Assignments and the readings that accompany them are also available, although most of the readings for the course are not. To take this course, visit the systems engineering course page.
