Systems Engineering is a disciplined, well-defined approach to the design and construction of large-scale systems. It has been embraced by both the Government and the Industry as they continue to look for improved system performance within the budget and schedule constraints. As we move toward more complex, integrated, technology-based solutions, there is a growing demand for engineers with “systems” skills. They also represent the talent reservoir that many of the future managers and leaders will come from.

In this Systems Engineering Training workshop, you will learn the key concepts and skills of systems engineering including the systems approach, elements of systems engineering, requirements engineering, system architecting and analysis, software engineering, acquisition perspectives, and select advanced topics. You will also participate in group problem-solving sessions that will provide you with the opportunity to practice some of the important techniques of systems engineering.

Systems Engineering Training covers the following topics:
  • Systems Engineering: Overview of System Engineering Process
  • Systems Engineering: Business/Mission Needs and Objectives
  • Systems Engineering: Leading and Managing SE Activities
  • Systems Engineering: Concept of Operations (CONOPS)
  • Systems Engineering: Reliability Engineering
  • And more…
  • 4 days of Systems Engineering Training Workshop with an expert instructor
  • Systems Engineering Electronic Course Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee



Upon completing this Systems Engineering Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

  • Acquire a practical approach to the engineering of system requirements
  • Acquire a practical approach to the engineering design, development, and integration of complex systems
  • Employ conceptual design of complex systems and System of Systems (SoS)
  • Describe Requirements Analysis, Functional Definition, Physical Definition, and Design Validation
  • Generate and work with the core SE products
  • Describe phases of the systems engineering life cycle to a hypothetical systems problem
  • Describe how the systems engineer manages systems projects and mitigates risks
  • Explore approaches to architecture in the system
  • Create an awareness of the activities required to deploy, maintain, and sustain a complex system in the operations environment
  • We can adapt this Systems Engineering Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this Systems Engineering Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Systems Engineering Training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Systems Engineering Training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.

The target audience for this Systems Engineering Training course:

Systems Engineering Workshop is designed for professional engineers and scientists who have basic systems engineering responsibilities or who want to grow into this role

  • Working in any sort of system development
  • Project leader or key member of a product development team
  • Looking for practical methods to use today

The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this Systems Engineering course are:
