Learning outcome

At the end of the course the student should be able to understand complex engineering projects, and to approach complex projects through collaboration across different engineering fields as well as project management and communication. Methods used to design, analyze and evaluate complex engineered systems.Decision Making theory and common techniques used to rank and quantify designs.  

At the end of the course the student should be able to:
- Identify the main components of an engineered systems
- Understanding the mission and performance concept in these systems.
- Be acquainted with state of the art literature for systems engineering. Apply SE techniques, with preliminary requirements, analyses and evaluation.  

The student should understand the complexity of large engineering projects:
- Understanding the mapping between Form/Function of a design problem. Converging these basic design problem to a specific research question within engineering design.
-Filter state of art literature of methods and analyses to specific problems of their
- Research. Identify these methods in real engineer systems, applying them to solve a specific problem from their research.

Learning methods and activities

The course is organized with lectures on background topics, examples and exercises in class (case studies). The case studies will be solved individually or in groups and documented in a project report.
