About this course

The systems on which the world depends are becoming increasingly complex as the world becomes more interconnected. Systems engineering is the discipline of building highly sophisticated systems that work successfully. It is about the key creative processes that transform concepts into system designs; and the key technological and management processes, enabling system development to proceed in an orderly, interdisciplinary fashion, maximising opportunities to meet customer needs while minimising risk. The program is modelled on the Boeing masters program conducted in the USA and includes a wide choice of electives. Many courses are offered in flexible delivery modes aimed at professionals interested in upgrading or updating their qualifications. A range of specialist electives is available.
