Systems Integrated Development Certificate -- Curriculum 171

The Department of Systems Engineering offers a four-course academic certificate in Systems Integrated Development (SID) that enables students to apply systems engineering and management in defense acquisition and system lifecycle support.  Integrated product development team members work with systems engineers in both technical and management competency areas requiring skills in effective teamwork and communications, statistical operational analysis, lifecycle cost management and human systems integration.  This program is targeted for mid- and upper-level integrated product team members working in or in support of the Defense Acquisition System but has great benefit for all who seek further knowledge in the theory and practice of systems engineering and the implementation of sound systems engineering management principles within an organization.

Requirements for Entry

– Undergraduate degree with minimum 2.2 grade point average.

Prerequisites

– Successful completion of System Engineering Certificate (282) or approval of academic associate.

Outcomes

HUMAN SYSTEMS INTEGRATION: Address human factors during requirements definition, as well as workload, safety, training, operability and ergonomics during design. Conduct functional analysis and allocation to human elements, performing cost-risk-effectiveness trade-offs among hardware, software, and human elements. Evaluate proposed designs for man-machine integration, human performance testing, and usability during development test and evaluation. Understand basic human biology as applied to human systems.
