Certificate Course Electronic Systems & Software Engineering

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on how to design and manage complex engineering systems over their life cycles. Issues such as requirements engineering, reliability, logistics, coordination of different teams, testing and evaluation, reliability, maintainability and many other disciplines necessary for successful system development, design, implementation, and ultimate decommission become more difficult when dealing with large or complex projects.

Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods, and risk management tools in such projects. It overlaps technical and human-centered disciplines such as control engineering, industrial engineering, software engineering, organizational studies, and project management. Systems engineering ensures that all likely aspects of a project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole.


Learning Targets/ Skills

The goal of the certificate course is to comprehend theory, methodologies and application of computer aided processes in all phases of the life cycle of an electronic system or microsystems, comprising hardware and software, especially the system oriented, interdisciplinary approach to develop innovative electronic products efficiently, timely, according to economical and market needs under consideration of global and social context.
