This course provides an introduction to systems engineering fundamentals, establishing a robust framework for designing complex engineered systems in response to customer needs and expectations. The emphasis of the course is on the three core activities of systems engineering, which are requirements analysis; functional analysis and allocation; and design synthesis. Together, these activities form what is called the systems engineering process, which provides a comprehensive, life-cycle balanced approach to the design of complex systems that satisfy customer expectations and public acceptability.
Learning OutcomesUpon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify different types of systems through key behaviours and functionality
- Identify and analyse the various phases in a system's life-cycle, and demonstrate an understanding of the importance of considering a system's life-cycle early in the design effort
- Understand different types of requirements, constraints, and assumptions encountered during systems design
- Gather, analyse, and communicate requirements to technical and non-technical audiences
- Identify, analyse, and objectively resolve design trade-offs
- Understand the importance of systems engineering management in the design process
- Critically evaluate engineering case studies and apply the findings to guide and inform the engineering design process
- Apply systems engineering fundamentals to a real-world project as part of a design team
- Case study 20%
- Major design project 30%
- Assignments (4x 5%)
- Exam (30%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
