Systems EngineeringUST Definition Systems Engineering may be defined as a creative human activity in which engineers design and develop complex interconnections of devices, sub-systems, and components to meet human needs. The activity involves, in general, the following: • Determination of the need • Developing possible basic conceptual designs • Determination of what existing devices and systems might meet the need • Development of the requirements that such a system must meet • Development of testing and validation procedures • Development of maintenance, upgrading, and improvement of the system • Planning effective means for disposal and recycling of components at an appropriate time
Program Objectives • To prepare engineers and related technical professionals for a career in systems engineering. • To prepare engineers who demonstrate lifelong learning, ethical behavior, sensitivity to cultural needs in the design and development of systems, and inclusion of people from traditionally underrepresented groups.
Program Outcomes Graduates of the program must demonstrate these abilities and skills: • the skills needed for design including problem formulation and solving, creativity, synthesis, analysis, team skills, economic analysis, decision-making, and communication. • the ability to integrate ideas from a variety of sources in order to create systems that meet desired needs. • the skills needed to employ empirical methods including the design, fabrication, and execution of experiments, and the reporting and interpretation of results. • an ability to perceive the interconnections between seemingly diverse fields of human endeavor • the ability to recognize, articulate, and act in accordance with the highest standard of ethical, professional, and social behavior.
