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.
This course gives a lot of insights into the SE activities, which we normally don't notice. This would be useful for the system developers as well System Safety engineers to appreciate the system

The first part was very interesting and useful. The exercices very interesting as well. The second part was less structured, with a bit strange and unrelated exercises. Although, it was still useful.
On overall I rank it as four, because it was a really good introduction to System Engineering. Despite the above mentioned drawbacks, after accomplishment of the course, I could easily work with terms related to System Engineering and could understand much more better the design process of the systems.

The instructors and course materials were good, and I would recommend this course to others. The only difficulty I had was the cadence; my available time comes in "chunks" and at random intervals, while the Coursera course demands a fairly even cadence/interaction for normal execution. I found I was resetting milestones almost every time I logged in. As the course involves peer review, I'm not sure how it could be altered - but perhaps you might find this feedback useful.

Very good introduction into systems engineering. I came with a background as informal practitioner and could recognize my experiences as part of the framework. Definitely recommend the course.
Reason for 4 stars: too many test questions are focused on what the exact meaning of a definition. While this is important, the questions should be used to test for understanding of the concepts

Excellent course on the introduction of The Systems Engineering Approach. All concepts have been explained in simple language. The use of appropriate examples and exercises help us understand the concepts well. I wonder weather tying in a course like "Atlassian: JIRA" which is offered on the Coursera platform would help in learning a tool which is often used in Systems Engineering.

Very well made, great contents. The only reason I removed a star is it seemed to me there was more topics in the quizes than in the course itself in the first part. It was a bit confusing and the quizes required to look up information on the internet and there was no real way to know these topics would be in the quizes. Otherwise, I enjoyed the class and learned a gread deal.

The course was really great. The Instructors are really good :)
I work in the automobile industry and it was really interesting to see the V cycle from a house construction perspective.
I missed some practical examples at the end of the course, making the glue between the different topics that we learned

I started learn the course with a strong passion and enthusiasm in systems engineering field. The modules were taught sequentially in the Coursera and I am able to understand it in a certain open system situations.

Good introduction to the waterfall approach. Early emphasis is on terminology of the course and project management aspects. Handouts with terms and project stages would be helpful. Second half is more applied.

I really did appreciate to learn Introduction to SE and test my newly acquired knowledge. The second part from Week 5 to 8 could be considered not as good as the first part but I am fully satisfied.
By Huutri D•
It is difficult to remember all new terminologies from section module 1-4 since we are not using it daily. Section 5-8 are more practical and I enjoyed a lot. Good course and presentations.
By Harsh T•
Course content is too good.. it'd have been better if other models apart from the Waterfall model would have also been covered in this course by adding one more week to it...
By Thet N N S•
In my opinion, this course is a nice course for foundation of system engineering. I think that It will be improved if it is included more practical examples in the course.
+ Very knowledgeable and experienced professors
-Not very clear in their explanation
-Some quiz questions and terms do not appear on the texts
By Alex B•
A good introduction to Requirements Engineering and Systems Engineering, with examples and clear descriptions of what to do, what for and when.
By Richard W•
I didn´t liked that at I think 2 tests there were wrong questions/answers!
By Sai P D•
It was very useful for me to relate it my work in systems Engineering in Automotive Field.
By Russell S•
A really good introduction to Systems Engineering , i thoroughly enjoyed the program
By samer a F•
a lot of knowledge has been learned in terms of engineering disciplinary
By saideep n•
Good details and overview of systems engineering processes and examples
By SIMON M E•
This Course is really awesome.
It is just perfect to suit its purpose.
By Kaijun F•
Good for introduction purpose. Could include more practical projects.
By Muad A S D•
The quizzes were a bit hard :) but an overall excellent course.
By Hitesh M•
This is a really good course with a lot of good content.
By Andrew M•
I bought the book as well, very useful.
