Aerospace Systems Engineering Training Course – Hands-on

Aerospace systems engineering training covers the fundamentals of systems engineering and their applications in aerospace systems, emphasizing commercial and military systems. We will provide you with a practical knowledge of all components, technical and managerial, included in systems engineering as used in aerospace systems of variable complexity. This hands-on training will focus on the challenging parts in systems development including requirements definition, integration, distribution of requirements, risk management, verification and validation. We also will discuss the techniques and methods used on commercial systems, DoD, NATO and NASA programs.

Learn About:

• Systems engineering practices
• Terms and methods
• System life cycles used by INCOSE, DoD and NASA
• Requirements generation
• Trade studies
• Architectural practices
