Full course description

Specialty engineering is a part of systems engineering that provides subject matter expertise in analysis disciplines necessary to deliver an effective, safe, and affordable system.  In this micro-course, we introduce fourteen specialty engineering areas and explore basic concepts for humans in the system, system cost, and system support.  

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this micro-course, students will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of specialty engineering in influencing system design
  • Define how systems engineers and specialty engineers interact through the program lifecycle
  • Identify specialty engineering disciplines that address humans in the system
  • Identify specialty engineering disciplines that address system lifecycle costs
  • Identify specialty engineering disciplines that address system support
  •  

This micro-course addresses the following INCOSE learning objective:

Describe the activities and importance of specialty engineering

Describe the relationship between specialty engineering and the technical processes 

Define the relationship of logistics engineering to the technical processes, especially the maintenance process 

Define the relationship of the human specialty engineering functions to the technical processes, especially the operations process
