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 and verification, while always considering the complete problem. In this subject you will investigate a range of systems engineering principles and development methodologies related to system innovation using TRIZ, system design and project management.
