SYEG 600 Advanced Systems Engineering and Program Management

3 semester hours

This course will cover the skills required for systems engineers to move into program management, and for program managers to become successful leaders. The course will examine key system engineering processes and their utility for programmatic decision-making (Risk & Opportunity management, Technical Performance Measures, schedule execution metrics, etc.). We will study transition into program management, with a focus on requisite soft skills (e.g., leadership types, team development and motivation, communication) and hard skills (e.g., decision making, risk management, issue management). We will study the customer’s view and influence on programmatic decisions and execution. Later lectures will consider program leadership and execution within the context of the broader corporate enterprise and address concepts such as corporate strategy, branding, and product development.
