This course provides an introduction to the analysis and design of engineering systems. The emphasis is on non-discipline specific theory and methods that can be applied at a high level to the design and understanding of complex engineering systems. The course will cover concepts from systems theory and the engineering design process including methods of understanding and evaluating an engineering system's interaction with its environment and society. Principles from dynamic modeling, feedback, sensitivity analysis, and optimization will be used to design, understand, and analyze engineering systems. Students will apply theory and methods by participating in a high level, multi-disciplinary, complex design project.

This course can be studied for credit in the following programs:

  • Master of Engineering
  • Graduate Studies
  • and as an elective in other  programs.
