Skills to be acquired in this module
Professional competences: Designing and maintaining complex artefacts are a mayor challenge of engineering for decades. System Engineering is an approach to handle this complexity. By completing this module, the students are aware of the challenges of complexity. They know how systems engineering can address these while designing complex but reliable, dependable and safe products. A major cornerstone is to know the concept of a system and to describe it using appropriate modelling techniques. The student starts think in systems as an aggregation of components systems that may again be a component of an aggregated system up to the concepts of systems of systems. They are able to understand the effects of single components attributes on the system as a hole including humans a elements of complex systems.
Methodological competences: The students are able to apply system-engineering methodologies and methods to understand requirements, to design, implement and test systems.
Professional competences: Usage of engineering tools will provide practical experience.
Social competences: They are aware of the role complex systems play in our society and got and understanding of complexity management as a Self-competences:s in engineering.
