Systems Engineering is the foundation for successful products and architectures. You learn to think in systems, to structure complex tasks, to evaluate dependencies and to model systems. Complex systems with hardware, software and mechanics are a special challenge. Systems Engineering provides the methods to deal with it.
Our training introduces to systematic systems engineering. The training is based on the applicable industry standards, such as INCOSE, CMMI and ASPICE. Many practical examples ensure hands-on learning that goes beyond the mere theory of the systems engineering standards. You will become familiar with frequently used methods of systems engineering in the areas of system requirements, system architecture, system integration and system testing. In particular, you understand the interaction of the technical core processes between system and software level. With our practice-oriented training, you will be able to transfer what you have learned into your everyday project life and use it productively.
