 Encyclopedia article on Systems engineering [EncycloZine]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Large engineering projects, such as the development of a new airliner or warship, can often be subdivided and managed through the execution of a series of smaller, interconnected engineering projects.
This approach to engineering is inherently complex, since the behavior of and interaction between such "subsystems" is not always apparent.
Systems engineering often involves the modelling or simulation of some aspects of the proposed system in order to validate assumptions or explore theories.

 Undergraduate Program Options
Systems graduates will be able to recognize problems requiring knowledge from diverse disciplines, and to focus the efforts of multi-talented teams on their solution.
Electrical engineering can be split into the engineering of power systems, which is chiefly concerned with the transformation of energy; and electronic engineering, which, like communications and computer engineering, is concerned with the transformation of information.
These are systems engineers, and the Systems option gives them training in electronic engineering, computing, some grounding in mechanical engineering and materials, and a few project courses to tie it all together.

Systems engineering is essentially the function that oversees any design effort to ensure that the resulting design does what it's supposed to.
If the system engineer has done their job right when all the design components are integrated into each other the resulting system really does what it was intended to do and meets the functional requirements.
This book will be extremely helpful for engineers of any stripe who want to put their work into context, systems engineers for how to do what their supposed to do, and for contractors and government purchasers to implement processes to guarantee that they get a system that does what they want.
