Systems Engineering for Safety

Module Title - Systems Engineering for Safety
Number of credits - 10

Module description 

This module is an introduction to the technical and organisational aspects of systems engineering, focusing on early lifecycle systems analysis and modelling (i.e. systems concepts, requirements and architectures).

It intends to present systems engineering principles which are applicable to a range of critical engineering systems (e.g. control systems, platforms, systems of systems and autonomous and configurable systems).

In particular, it focuses on the early consideration of, and trade-offs between, technical as well as economic attributes such as safety, maintainability, cost and time-to-market in the context of key organisational challenges related to technology readiness and process maturity.
