Subject outline

Systems Engineering defines an interdisciplinary approach to the realisation of complex engineering systems. It has a strong focus on defining customer needs and requirements,documentation, design synthesis, risk analysis, system testing andverification, while always considering the complete problem. Systems Engineering addresses both the technical and business requirements with the goal of producing a quality product meeting the user's needs. In this subject students will investigate a range of systems engineering principles and development methodologies with a focus on how engineering design and developmentis organised and conducted in industry. Students will be exposed to diverse examples which may include: automation; electro-mechanical systems; processdesign and communications.
