Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems by defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle. Systems engineers are responsible for the design and management of omplex systems guided by systems requirements. There is a growing need for engineers who are concerned with the whole system and can take an interdisciplinary and top down approach. Systems engineers need to be problem definers, not just problem solvers, and be nvolved with a system through its life cycle, from development through production, deployment, training support, operation, and disposal.
