The course is interesting
System Engineering is the best course.

System Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on how to design, monitor and manage engineering systems.
understanding of technological systems
WHAT IS SYSTEM?
Why must systems engineering be complex, can it not be simplfied by using certain tools?
To understand the balance and constraints of an engineering project and it's life cycle
System engineering is an international idea through which faults are detected in order to provide a definite solution for the project at hand
Systems engineering is a methodical, disciplined approach for design, realization, technical management, operations and retirement of a system. A "system" is a construct or collection of different elements that together produce results not obtainable by the elements alone. The elements, or parts, can include people, hardware, software, facilities, policies and documents; that is , all things required to produce system-level results. Systems engineering is the art and science of developing an operable system capable of meeting requirements within often opposed constraints. Systems engineering is a holistic, integrative, discipline, wherein the contribution of structural engineers, electrical engineers, mechanism designers, power engineers, human factors engineers and many more disciplines are evaluated and balanced, one against another, to produce a coherent whole that is not dominated by the perspective of a single discipline.
This module examines system engineering and why it is important. You will learn to identify and evaluate the importance of relationships within the process and assess the relative importance of stakeholders.
You will also be able to classify a systems engineering project in terms of the balance of demands, choice and constraints.
The aim of this module is to answer five questions:
Why is systems engineering important?
What is modern engineering?
What is systems?
What is systems engineering?
What approach to systems engineering does the course adopt?
After studying this unit you should be able to:
Evaluate a specific example or case of a product development process in terms of the ‘waterfall’ life cycle model of software development;
Classify new product developments as: fault correction, enhancements, new but similar products, radically different, revolutionary or iconoclastic products;
Analyze the causes of a systems failure;
Identify and evaluate the importance of the relationships of the factors leading up to system complication and complexity;
Answer the question ‘why is systems engineering important?’
Define the difference in process between science and engineering;
Identify and analyze the importance of stakeholders involved in a systems engineering project;
Classify a systems engineering project in terms of the balance of demands, choice and constraints;
Analyze a system using input-output diagramming;
Estimate the lag involved in controlling a system;
Analyze a ‘rich picture’;
Evaluate the differences between a generic model of systems engineering and a software specific model;
Summarize the characteristics of the systems engineering approach;
Identify the main features of the approach to systems engineering adopted by the OU course team and which forms the basis for the structure and teaching in the original course.
