Graduate Certificates in Advanced Systems Engineering

This track is focused on system modeling, sizing and performance (common course with controlled system design & verification track), and robust design and uncertainty analysis including hazard analysis, FMEA, fault trees, reliability analysis, diagnostics & prognostics, and analyses to mitigate the risk of downstream design iterations due to uncertainty in requirements or system behaviors.

Course Description Overview

Courses

This track will build system engineering competency related to controlled system design and verification of physical systems. The principles of model-based design and verification will be emphasized. Courses are sequenced to allow students to establish a solid understanding of the pillars for requirements analysis, architecture selection, model-based development methods and tools, and design flows.

Course Description Overview

Courses

This track addresses design flows as applied to embedded software intensive systems within a larger integrated system (e.g., a computational system that implements part of control architecture in a larger thermal fluids system such as an environmental control system or a chiller or an electro-mechanical system). As with the controlled systems track, the design flows course will take students from the requirements analysis of an embedded system through architectural selection (hardware/software), platform-based embedded system design to finally close with verification and validation of the system skills in embedded systems modeling and analysis as well as formal methods as used in verification and validation.
