SE4930: Model-Based Systems Engineering - NPS Online
Model-Based Systems Engineering
Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months
POC: NPS Online Support
Practical systems engineering relies heavily on models during conceptualization, system definition, system design, system integration, as well as system assessment. This course addresses the use of models in all phases of the systems engineering process. Details of widely-used processes for modeling are described and these tools are used in laboratory exercises and projects. This course uses a seminar approach with out-of-classroom reading and in-class discussions of the reading replacing traditional lectures.
