On-Site Virtual Live
This course is a continuation of Introduction to Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), and provides in-depth exposure to building and using industry-leading system modeling tools to apply and analyze real-world case studies. This course will focus on the application of Model Based Systems Engineering through the use of a modeling language, a modeling method and a system modeling tool as part of the systems engineering process to support requirements, design, analysis, specification, and verification and validation activities of the system. Concepts that were developed from the previous course are now analyzed to assist the systems engineer to explore the solution space using MBSE.
Prerequisite(s): 645.631 Introduction to Model Based Systems Engineering.
Instructor(s): McGervey, Shuman
Are you looking for the real-time interaction of live classes but need the flexibility of online classes? The online live (or sometimes referred to as virtual live) class format may be for you! The course is held on a regularly scheduled time (e.g. Mondays, 4:30–7:10 p.m. EST), and the instructor teaches like a real course. Students may either attend in person (if they live in the Washington DC area) or attend remotely. All students would follow along with the lectures as well as ask questions in real-time. Class sessions are recorded and archived if students need to refer back to their notes or discussions in class. All students have access to these recordings. This format is different than the online classes (taught asynchronously) that has the opportunity for interactions. It is presented in a more limited format (e.g. weekly office hours or one-on-one discussions with the instructor). Other JHU programs have used this format and have been successful in addressing the student who still desires a regular class schedule but may not live in the area.
Are you ready for your capstone project? The Systems Engineering program concludes with either a project or thesis, with the majority of students selecting the project. This is an independent effort that provides the experience of applying systems engineering principles and skills learned in the formal courses to a specific practical project. The student is completely in charge of this course, selecting a project, presenting the formal proposal, completing all the interim reports, and presenting the results in a final presentation.
Join us for an informational webinar on Sunday, January 6, 2019, 7:00–8:00 p.m. EST. This question and answer session is for all students, whether you are taking the course next semester or next year. During this event, we will share tips on successfully completing the class, discuss strategies for managing the project and more.
Note: This session will be recorded and posted on our website.
