SE3810 Systems Engineering Seminar

This weekly seminar on topics in Systems Engineering is intended to broaden and extend knowledge horizons beyond material covered in regular classes, to provide opportunities for critical discussion of systems engineering topics, to relate course work to the real world and emphasize the implications of engineering choices on a society as a whole, and to promote good lifelong learning habits. The course will provide operational, historical, cultural, and economic contexts for the material studied in the SE curriculum. It will also promote the recognition of, critical analysis of, and planning for development and exploitation of future military capabilities. Students will be required to read, analyze, and discuss in class at least four books per quarter selected by the faculty to address an overall theme that will vary from quarter to quarter.
