EVA module

Description (max. 300 characters):

The module Systems- and Requirements Engineering Basics shall introduce the systematic and practical handling of larger or more complex systems as well in technical as in organisational sense. The module is strongly interdisciplinary and forms the link between the precise engineering world and the final system users.
You obtain an insight to what industry denotes as systems and requirements engineering. In this context you learn where requirements arise and how they formalised, interlinked, managed and evaluated, learn about stake-holders and their importance, understand how systems are modelled and described, get to understand interface management and last but not least you will learn about verification and validation. You will have the possibility to practice the theory on a practical
example that will continue through the course.
This EVA is especially valuable for students interested in working in fields of high reliability and regulation, such as (but not exclusive) Aerospace, Automotive, Power Plants, Medical
Technology and so on.

Contents and Learning Objectives:


  • Requirements engineering and its relevance for hard- and software related industry
  • Systems engineering and its industrial relevance
  • Stakeholder, stakeholder analysis und stakeholder management
  • Requirements engineering methods
  • System architecture und system description
  • Interfaces and interface management
  • Verification und validation
