Systems Engineering

What is Systems Engineering?


Systems Engineering

is an
interdisciplinary
approach

to designing and deploying successful
systems. It blends
engineering, systems
thinking, and management topics
. SYE
addresses the business and technical needs of
all stakeholder throughout the
entire design
process
, from concept to production to
operations to disposal. (from INCOSE)

Is SyE Related to Industrial Engineering?


Industrial Engineering

is concerned with the
design, improvement, and installation

of
integrated systems of
people, materials, and
equipment
. It draws upon specialized
knowledge and skill in the mathematical,
physical, and social sciences, together with the
principles and methods of engineering analysis,
to design, specify, predict, and analyze the
results obtained from such systems
.
(from IIE)

SYE is Different From

Other Engineering Disciplines


Focused on systems
integration


More emphasis on
human interaction


Information systems
mentality


Broader business
orientation


More direct process

Engineering

What is C
ivil

Engineering?


Civil engineering is the oldest of the engineering
disciplines and involves the planning, design, and
construction of facilities essential to modern life.


requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles
along with the development of skills in the areas of
planning and management of construction projects
such
as
highways
,
bridges
,
airports
,
railroads
,
buildings
,
dams
, and
reservoirs
.


Graduates have the qualifications to enter careers in
areas such as, but not limited to, transportation
engineering, structural engineering, environmental
engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resource
engineering, and construction engineering.

What is Construction Engineering?


In this major the traditional areas of Civil Engineering
and Construction Management are combined to produce
graduates who are able to work effectively in all aspects
of the construction industry.


Concerns the planning and management of the
construction

of structures such as
highways
,
bridges
,
airports
,
railroads
,
buildings
,
dams
, and
reservoirs
.


Construction engineering is differentiated from
construction management from the standpoint of the
level of mathematics, science and engineering used to
analyze problems and design a construction process.

Where do we find CEs?


Construction companies


City and county
construction departments


State and federal
transportation
organizations (such as
the Georgia Department
of Transportation)


Civil engineering
consulting and design
firms


Construction Engineer


Project Engineer


Project Supervisor


Construction Manager


Design Engineer

Electrical Engineering

What is Electrical Engineering?


Electrical engineering is arguably the
largest discipline of engineering.


Application of the principles of electricity
and its use with electrical devices and
systems.


Nearly every industry utilizes electrical
engineers.

Where do we find EEs?
