Systems Architecting is a very popular course in the Systems Engineering program that essentially outlines a process for managing complexity.
Systems architecting shows how a system fits in its surroundings, how it is to be used, and how the system is to be constructed. It is an interdisciplinary means to define the structure of an envisioned system by identifying the system parts or elements, and describing the interaction among the elements.
Charles (Chuck) Fidler has been an instructor and student advisor at the Johns Hopkins University Crystal City campus since he graduated from the MSSE program in 2005.
Chuck has taught nearly every systems engineering course offered at Crystal City, Virginia, typically teaching four classes a year as well as mentoring students in the systems capstone project.
The quality of any program is directly related to the experience, knowledge, and dedication of its faculty.
The Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals has a well-established reputation for the highest quality education for working professionals.
Requirements definitions are the key to success in the design and development of any complex system.
The systems engineer needs to carefully elicit requirements from users and stakeholders to ensure the product will meet their needs.
The following provides a checklist to guide the collection and documentation of good systems requirements. It has been derived and reproduced with permission from the Requirements Experts.
The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Systems Engineering program started the capstone project at the beginning of the program nearly two decades ago to provide a challenging opportunity for the student to
think like a systems engineer.
Dave Flanigan has taught systems engineering courses for Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals in many capacities including on-site courses (i.e., Laurel and Southern Maryland), online courses, and through our partnership programs with industry in Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, Arizona, and Colorado.
He serves as an instructor who averages five courses a year, in addition to mentoring students in the systems engineering capstone project. He also serves as a student advisor.
In every systems engineering course at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, risk is an important topic.
The development of a new complex system by its nature requires acquiring knowledge about advanced but not fully developed devices and processes so as to wisely guide the system design to a product that performs its intended mission reliably and at an affordable cost.
Our systems engineering master's degree graduates have the technical depth, breadth, and leadership skills to solve tomorrow's greatest challenges today.
The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Systems Engineering program resides within the Whiting School of Engineering of Johns Hopkins University.
The JHU systems engineering team had a strong presence at the INCOSE International Symposium. As a bronze sponsor, Johns Hopkins University recognizes the importance of professional volunteer activities for the Whiting School of Engineering and its students.
INCOSE (i.e., the International Council on Systems Engineering) is the professional organization that many JHU graduates join.
