The world is getting more and more interconnected, and the systems on which the world depends are becoming increasingly complex.
Such systems are complex, and are made up of – and interact with – many other systems.
Systems Engineering (SE) is the discipline of building highly sophisticated systems that work successfully. It is about the key creative processes that transform concepts into system designs, and the key technological and management processes that enable system development to proceed in an orderly, interdisciplinary fashion – maximising opportunities to meet customer needs while minimising risk.
The UQ SE program is modelled on the Boeing masters program conducted in the US and is intended to provide students with the broad range of skills required to be a successful system engineer. Some of the courses are offered in flexible delivery modes aimed at professionals interested in upgrading or updating their qualifications.
Students will have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art Computer Aided Systems Engineering (CASE) tools in an especially equipped laboratory (78-208) established with the aid of Boeing funding.
Systems Engineers are employed in a wide range of industry sectors including defence, aerospace, transport, mining, power, and production. Click here for some examples. Click here for one graduate’s outcomes.
The School of IT&EE undertakes internationally recognised research in engineering of complex software-intensive systems.
