Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on how to design and manage complex engineering systems over their life cycles. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) offers the Electronic Systems and Software Engineering programme.


Key facts

Issues such as requirements engineering, reliability, logistics, coordination of different teams, testing and evaluation, reliability, maintainability and many other disciplines necessary for successful system development, design, implementation, and ultimate decommission become more difficult when dealing with large or complex projects.

Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods, and risk management tools in such projects. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)'s Electronic Systems and Software Engineering overlaps technical and human-centered disciplines such as control engineering, industrial engineering, software engineering, organizational studies, and project management. Systems engineering ensures that all likely aspects of a project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole.
