CEE 5240 Model Based Systems Engineering

Instructor: David Schneider

Lecture: MW 1:25-2:40 RHD 253
Section: M 4:30-5:20 RHD 253
T 9:05-9:55 RHD 253

Fall. 4 credits.

Prerequisite or corequisite: enrollment in group-based project with strong system design component approved by course instructor. Permission of instructor required. Enrollment limited to: seniors or graduate students in an engineering field. Core course for Systems Engineering majors. Co-meets with SYSEN 5110.

Fundamental ideas of systems engineering, and their application to design and development of various types of engineered systems. Defining system requirements, creating effective project teams, mathematical tools for system analysis and control, testing and evaluation, economic considerations, and the system life cycle.Content utilizes model-based systems engineering, which is the integration of systems modeling tools, such as SysML, with tools for systems analysis, such as Matlab and Modelica. The vision for this integration is the ability to create and analyze complete parametric representations of complex products and systems. These systems make it possible to investigate the impact of changing one aspect of a design on all other aspects of design and performance. This course will familiarize students with these modeling languages. Off-campus students must provide their own Windows 7, internet-connected, computer with administrator access in order to install the commercial software used in this course. 

This course is designed for students with a TOEFL score of 104 to match the Systems Engineering program threshold for admission.

Students majoring in Systems Engineering should enroll in SYSEN 5100. Students taking the minor in Systems Engineering should enroll in CEE 5240ECE 5120MAE 5910, or ORIE 5140.   Students in distance learning programs should enroll in SYSEN 5110. Course is identical for all versions.
