Course Description

Systems are becoming increasingly large and complex with many challenges in their design, development, and implementation. Systems engineering enables the successful completion of large and complex projects. In this course, you will be introduced to systems engineering (SE) with emphasis on model based SE (MBSE) using the SysML language. Your knowledge will be reinforced by carefully designed assignments, and lab projects involving automotive and autonomous vehicle systems.

Lab Projects Description

Lab Project 1: Development of the structure, behavior, and requirements for ABS using SysML

Lab Project 2: Development of the structure, behavior, and requirements for an AV obstacle detection and avoidance controller using SysML.

  • Articulate the concepts of system life cycle, requirements, and the various design activities
  • Describe importance of verification and validation (V&V) of requirements
  • Define and illustrate what is meant by model based system engineering (MBSE)
  • Explain the main features of SysML as a SE language
  • Develop the structure, behavior, and requirements of a specific sub-system using SysML
  • Articulate the concept of a safety culture and the role of the system architect

Please note: This course requires an online component to be completed at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the in-person portion of the course on May 29th.
