Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 5:30 pm Eastern (Will include a 30 minute lunch break)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • use System Engineering approach in managing project scope
  • integrate efficient and effective management tools for safety engineering and software engineering in project management
  • determine business risks analysis/impact of schedule and budget overrun
  • conduct system design reviews: requirements traceability verses contract statements
  • be familiar with system engineering as a profession

Engineering is now part of new technologies in system development. To remain competitive a company needs to excel in advanced systems engineering, methodology of project development, beginning with a requirements study and analysis, through risk management and system design, to system verification and testing, deployment and training.
