About the Course

"Introduction to Systems Engineering" uses a structured yet flexible approach to provide a holistic, solid foundation to the successful development of complicated systems. The course takes you step by step through the system life cycle, from design to development, production and management. You will learn how the different components of a system interrelate, and how each contributes to a project’s goals and success. The discipline’s terminology, which can so often confuse the newcomer, is presented in an easily digestible form. Weekly video lectures introduce and synthesise key concepts, which are then reinforced with quizzes and practical exercises to help you measure your learning. This course welcomes anyone who wants to find out how complex systems can be developed and implemented successfully. It is relevant to anyone in project management, engineering, QA, logistic support, operations, management, maintenance and other work areas. No specific background is required, and we welcome learners with all levels of interest and experience....

Thank You!\n\nThis course has been extremely helpful for me to develop an understanding of systems engineering so that I can facilitate application of SE to a new technology my company is developing.

Great course with very essential foundation for System engineering. The quizzes encourage us to look for details and examples in the textbook which is helpful in understanding complicated definition.

The course creators clearly know their area. However the course itself was extremely dry and difficult to get through. The course creators should have captured the requirements of what makes a good course and then validated their work.

Good introduction but... - Course sometimes is vague and lacks of examples. - Domestic dwelling example used in the whole corse is a too open problem.ì and there are indeed, too many right answers

Could introduce more practical example to understand concept clearing .

Thoroughly disappointing. After a fairly acceptable start, it becomes clear that the contents veer off into academic theorising which finds itself astonishingly far removed from concrete applicability. If a business actually applied the concepts presented here, any project of even the smallest scope would take an indefinite amount of time to complete.

I think the course could be more interesting and better methodically build. I felt most of the time that the material is just being read out, with just a few real life examples. might have been better to choose one multidiscipline technological project and continue with it the whole course. I learned very little from the domestic dwelling project

I​ strongly recommend you move this course to a platform better than coursera.
