Aims of the course:
The course brings wide knowledge from systems engineering, a field using scientific and mathematical principles for finding economical solutions of problems of various types. A special emphasis is given to multidisciplinarity and application of systems approach. The students acquire the techniques and tools that are being employed during the systems engineering process, mainly during systems analysis and synthesis. The attention is also paid to interconnection of systems engineering and information and software systems.

1.Theoretical disciplines of systems science (allowance 6/6)
a.Introduction to Systems engineering
b.General systems theory, statical and dynamical systems, cybernetics

2.Applied disciplines of systems science (allowance 4/2)
a.Systems analysis
b.Systems synthesis

3.Systems modeling and simulation (allowance 4/2)
a.Models, mathematical models
b.Modeling and simulation processes

4.Selected problems of systems engineering (allowance 2/0)
a.Problems related to systems creation, structure, dynamics, and control
b.System softness

5.Architectures of systems (allowance 2/0)
a.Business architectures (TOGAF, MODAF, DODAF, Zachman)
b.Systems architectures, ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010
c.Systems view of enterprise, information systems

6.Systems life cycle (allowance 8/0)
a.Approaches to systems life cycle (NASA, V model, DoD), Systems Engineering process
b.Life cycle of software systems and information systems
c.Systems engineering activities

7.Consultation of term projects (allowance 2/2)

Assessment methods:
The course is finished by a successful project submission and passing an exam. In the project, the students demonstrate the ability of identification and definition of a dynamic system on a selected real object or process. The system is later used for solving a selected problem. The submitted document must contain all parts specified in the project assignment and can be corrected once. The written examination focuses on knowledge from systems engineering field and on the practical application of selected systems engineering methods and is evaluated as follows: A: 46 – 50 points, B: 42 – 45 points, C: 38 – 41 points, D: 34 – 37 points, E: 30 – 33 points. The course can be studied during a foreign trip.
