8 8 Georgia Tech – a balanced technological university Number 1 industrial and systems engineering program by U.S. News and World Report College of Engineering ranked in top five by U.S. News & World Report Largest voluntary Co-Op program in the U.S. First among U.S. universities in women engineering graduates Number 1 producer of African-American engineering graduates Number 1 industrial and systems engineering program by U.S. News and World Report College of Engineering ranked in top five by U.S. News & World Report Largest voluntary Co-Op program in the U.S. First among U.S. universities in women engineering graduates Number 1 producer of African-American engineering graduates StudentsStudents One of Top public best value schools in US Hope Scholarship One of Top public best value schools in US Hope Scholarship State Service FY04 research expenditures totaled more than $340 million Campus Nano Thrust Opening of Environment,Science,& Technology and BioMedical Engineering Buildings US DOD, DOE classified research FY04 research expenditures totaled more than $340 million Campus Nano Thrust Opening of Environment,Science,& Technology and BioMedical Engineering Buildings US DOD, DOE classified research Research Prestigious faculty holding 100 endowed chairs and professorships FacultyFaculty

9 9 Top 10 public universities, 6 th year in a row Engineering in top 5, both graduate and undergraduate; most disciplines in top 10 Industrial Systems Engineering ranked #1 Management 36 th undergrad, 42 nd grad; strong sub-programs point to future progress Top 10 programs in Liberal Arts & Management Strengths: academic reputation, student quality, faculty quality, alumni support Strong Rankings

10 10 Georgia Tech Research Institute Aerospace, Transportation, & Advanced Systems Advanced Transportation Systems Aerodynamics & Acoustics Powered Lift Aircraft Technologies Threat Systems &Intelligence Analysis UAV and Missile Technologies Sensors &Electromagnetic Applications Radar System Engineering, Phenomenology, & Signal Processing Airborne & Missile Defense Technology Electronic Protection Antenna Design, Evaluation, & Measurements Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Public Safety Applications Electro-Optics, Environment, & Materials Chemistry & Materials EO/IR Systems & Simulation Safety, Health, & Environment Integrated Optics Underwater Acoustic Applications Signatures Technology Electromagnetic Apertures & Scattering Electromagnetic Materials & Structures Optical/Infrared Physics & Phenomenology Security Information Systems Electronic Systems Modeling, Simulation, & Analysis Technology Insertion Systems Integration Test and Evaluation Human Factors Information Technology & Telecommunications Communications &Network Applications Information Assurance/Warfare Knowledge Management Product Design for Manufacturing Command & Control System Software Map-based Decision Support Systems Database Applications Huntsville Research Missile System Analysis Software Development HWIL/MIL Simulations Air Defense Systems Modeling & Simulations Wargame Simulations FMS Air Defense Modernization Force-on-Force Simulations

11 11 Distance Learning & Professional Education (DLPE) Georgia Techs unit for educational outreach Via technologies, reach to all parts of the globe Operate Global Learning & Conference Center Distance Delivery of 9 Masters degrees with over 500 students and 200+ courses per year Professional Education 700 short courses/year On-site and off-site programs (public & custom)

12 12 Approach to Systems Engineering Customer Desire Market Analysis Educational Development Pilot Program Non-credit Certificate Program Degree Program

13 13 Market analysis Market: past, present, & future Review changes in market, major players, market shifts, costs, pricing, competition Talk with Stakeholders Determine needs/desires, delivery formats, expectations

14 14 The Need DOD emphasis on Systems Engineering Retiring Systems Engineers with inexperienced replacements Current state depicts lack of systems thinking and systems engineering Systems are getting more complex, mistakes more costly Technology is moving faster so upgrades must be planned into the overall life cycle Industry wants systems approach – defense, sensors, textiles, biomedical Current systems integrators lack enterprise thinking

15 15 Requirements Stakeholder Emphasis on workplace applications Not ivory tower oriented Onsite course availability Blended delivery format Degree and career compatible Desired Interdisciplinary approach Instructors with experience University Academic oversight Degree and certificate programs

16 16 Skills & Knowledge Requirements Skills Strategic thinking Leadership Organization Building Technical Management Team Building People Management Scope Management Financial Management Knowledge Enterprise and System Architectures Decision Analysis Engineering Risk Analysis Requirements Definition and Management Life Cycle Management Project Management Finance, Business

17 17 Market analysis summary Significant employer and prospective student interest in degree and short courses Emphasis on workplace applications vital Interdisciplinary approach desired Instructors with practice experience desired Proposed core content attractive with electives into focus areas Strong interest - blended distance learning/ face-to-face format - 83% Professional rather than Executive is a more inclusive title for program $30,000 for degree generally considered reasonable

18 18 Systems Engineering Systems Engineering: the process by which a customers needs are satisfied through the conceptualization, design, modeling, testing, implementation, and operation of a working system. Challenges Increasing complexity of systems –Moving to integrated enterprise systems –Software intensive nature –Human system integration, rapid adaptation/user-centered evolvability –Earlier consideration of T&E and training concurrent with design Product Systems Engineering Enterprise SE Systems of Systems Systems Engineering Management Complexity 1950-1960s1970s1990s2010+2000s1980s Systems Theory

19 19 The degree and certificate at a glance Engineering laboratory (based on School of Aerospace Engineerings Collaboration Visualization Environment ) Engineering project simulation (live case studies) Core Courses (6) Experiential Component of Core Courses Systems Engineering Systems engineering fundamentals Systems design and analysis Systems modeling and optimization Advanced topics in systems engineering (e.g., enterprise systems, software intensive systems, human-system integration) Engineering Management Systems engineering management Management of engineering teams Practice Focus (4) three courses plus job related individual or group project in focus area Vehicles Information Systems Sensors Certificate 4 courses including lab intensive workshop

20 20 Details on the certificate Non-credit certificate offered by and scheduled through Georgia Techs Distance Learning and Professional Education CoE and GTRI Research Faculty teach the courses Provide immediate solutions for needs Case studies tailored to address needs of specific groups Certificate requires intro courses in systems engineering and engineering management, an additional short course plus participation in a one week systems engineering workshop Rigorous, practice focused curriculum reflective of industry/government engineering needs Competitive pricing A classified version of the certificate is supported

21 21 Professional Masters Degree Degree provides credibility in organization Course projects and case studies tailored to address needs of specific groups Rigorous, practice focused curriculum with admission criteria reflective of industry/government engineering needs College of Engineering and GTRI Research Faculty teach the courses and supervise projects Job related project in lieu of thesis Competitive pricing A classified version of the degree is being considered Only program in the country with an experiential component (engineering laboratory, project simulation, work related modules)

22 22 Proposed schedule and delivery method Fall 2005 Certificate offered in Atlanta (4 intensive one week sessions) Spring 2006 Certificate offered in GTRI Field Offices* Fall 2006/ Spring 2007 Degree offered in Atlanta Fall 2007 Degree offered at GTRI Field Offices* Fall 2008 Certificate and degree available via distance learning *initially Colorado Springs, DC, Dayton, Huntsville, Orlando based on demand (each course via one week workshop or every other weekend for 8 weeks) Center for Advanced Systems Engineering (an affiliated CoE/GTRI research center)
