Architecture and Systems Engineering: Models and Methods to Manage Complex Systems

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Online program

Our world runs on increasingly complex systems. Engineers face a critical challenge in designing, managing, and optimizing these systems for the rapidly changing products of tomorrow.

Employing industry case studies and the latest in systems thinking from MIT, this four-course certificate program explores models and methods in systems engineering. You will gain a knowledge base in complex systems, analysis of complex systems, and model management that will impact how you approach and solve problems. By the end of the program, you’ll be able to frame systems architecture as a series of decisions, which can be actively sorted, managed, and optimized to suit you and your organization’s needs.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

This certificate is especially relevant for those in aerospace, automotive, and defense industries, and engineers at original equipment manufacturers (OEM). It’s also designed for systems engineering professionals, directors, and senior managers across a number of industries looking to innovate and optimize their operational, manufacturing, and design systems. Departmental teams are encouraged to apply here.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Leveraging industry case studies and the latest thinking from MIT, this four-course certificate program explores the newest practices in systems engineering, including how models can enhance system engineering functions and how systems engineering tasks can be augmented with quantitative analysis.

By the end of the program you will:

  • Understand complex systems, analysis of complex systems, and model management.
  • Frame systems architecture as a series of decisions, which can be actively sorted, managed, and optimized to suit your organization’s needs.
  • Articulate the benefits and challenges of Model-Based Systems Engineering.
  • Develop a comprehensive knowledge of the key aspects of systems engineering.
