In contemporary society, almost everything is getting digital and connected. In the Systems-of-Systems Engineering course, you will learn the principles for how to make these digitalised systems collaborate effectively.

About this course

This course makes you acquainted with the concept of systems-of-systems (SoS), which means that independent systems are collaborating. It gives you an understanding why SoS is an important topic in the current digitalisation and provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding important characteristics of SoS. It also gives you a deeper knowledge in a number of key concerns that need to be considered when engineering SoS.

The main parts of the course are:

  • Characteristics of SoS and important sub-classes.
  • Underlying principles from systems theory and systems engineering.
  • Methods and tools for SoS engineering.
  • Architecture of an SoS and how it can be specified.
  • Interoperability between constituent systems, and underlying principles for information representation.
  • Business models and incentives for collaborations between systems.
  • Analysis of trustworthiness of SoS, including risks, safety, and security.
  • Examination mainly consists of written assignments during the course.

Admitted students to this course may join the course any time between August 30 and October 24, 2021. With the recommended study pace of 25%, the course would take approximate seven calendar weeks to complete. Higher or lower study pace is possible as long as the course is finished no later than January 16, 2022.
