Current Courses:

Eng Mgt 2310 - Introduction to Complex System Management

The concepts of Systems Engineering are introduced through a project. Students work in virtual teams. The topics covered are architecture development, basic system architectural design techniques, functional decomposition, design and technical review objectives, and initial specifications. Prerequisites: Graduate or senior standing.

Sys Eng 5101 - System Engineering and Analysis I

The concepts of Systems Engineering are introduced through a project. Students work in virtual teams. The topics covered are architecture development, basic system architectural design techniques, functional decomposition, design and technical review objectives, and initial specifications. Prerequisites: Graduate or senior standing.

Sys Eng 6542 - Model-Based Systems Engineering

This course covers the use of models to represent systems and the underlying system elements, components, etc. The systems modeling language (SysML) is examined to show and how it can be used to shift systems engineering from a document centric paradigm to one that is model centric. Topics also include executable systems architectures, model repositories, integration of models and information, and use of Model-Based Systems Engineering in a distributed system.

Sys Eng 6541 - Distributed Systems Modeling

This course discusses issues related to distributed systems architecting, modeling, analysis and representation, with specific focus on object oriented concepts for engineering design. Distributed modeling techniques and other model decomposition methods using simulation modeling and scalability issues will also be addressed.

The mission of the Energy Research & Development Center is to educate students in energy topics to solve problems of society and to deliver solutions for energy-related issues, by forming collaborative relationships with industry and government, for the benefit of the university, the state of Missouri and the nation.
