Teacher(s) in Charge 

Professor, Ph.D. Andrzej Kraslawski


After completion of the course, the students will be able to:

  • Understand the basic concepts of systems engineering
  • Apply the basic methods of systems analysis
  • Work in a team during systems design

The key topics of the course are: the concept of system, developing system requirements, the index of performance, system development and integration, system modelling, multi-criteria decision-making, ranking the alternatives.

Teaching Methods 

The course is organised as a combination of regular lectures and interactive problem-solving sessions and project work. The classroom problem-solving sessions will be based on team work in groups of 3-5 students. The 2-3 projects will be carried out in groups of 3-4 students independently and will result in the preparation of a project report. Classroom teaching and problem-solving sessions 30 hours. Project work 100 hours. Period 3. in-class activities (lectures, problem solving), period 4. out-of-class activities (project work). Total workload 130 hours.
Lectures, in-class  30 h, period 3. Project work, out-of class, 100 h, period 4.
