Model-Based Systems Engineering Fundamentals (MBSE) 26.0

Program Experience

As you face the challenges of optimizing design and simulation activities, you need the toolbox of relevant skills in Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). A critical capability in digital engineering, MBSE integrates iterative, comprehensive design with insights into the implications of choices, changes, and system behaviors. Engineering professionals and teams who must rapidly demonstrate MBSE skills requisite for high-stakes strategic programs choose Caltech when they need to learn the most pragmatic path to mastering model-based systems.

The objective of this six-day, open-enrollment certificate program is to focus on systems thinking throughout the engineering process—from gathering customer needs and requirements to systems modeling to integrated design and delivery.

Our experts pioneered the field and expertly guide you through project-based efforts. You can build to case materials on autonomous systems ventures or choose to model your own initiative. Either way, we'll advise you along the way on considerations, trades, and coaching for implementation.

Benefits

You will learn through a combination of action learning and hands-on model making using real-world cases—the skillset to hit the ground running in deployments. This program elevates your and your team’s capacity to create models that are both flexible and robust, boosting your organization's ability to deliver value as expected.

Students will learn how to:

  • Explore MBSE in the context of model-based engineering and complex systems
  • Scope and execute full lifecycle MBSE tasks
  • Model structures interactions and behaviors based on requirements and constraints
  • Generate appropriate systems models and effectively manage them
  • Investigate internal and external interactions
  • Assess trades and implications
  • Evaluate, critique, and improve SysML structures and models
  • Craft key representations, diagrams, and use-cases
  • Build confidence in applying MBSE fundamentals to make meaningful contributions to your projects
  • Plan appropriate approaches for implementation and accelerated adoption

Each participant will receive a copy of the textbook A Practical Guide to SysML: The Systems Modeling Language (Third Edition).

Topics

This program covers everything from gathering customer needs to integrated design and delivery. Get practical experience with interactive SysML models using Cameo Systems Modeler or similar Dassault tools.

Who Should Attend

This course addresses the needs of systems engineering professionals in aerospace, defense, electronics, mobility, and advanced medical devices. Senior and early-career engineers, analysts, designers, and developers will examine a structured approach to requirements analysis and systems design and will learn how to improve their planning, execution, and communications skills.

Project managers and support teams will explore how MBSE disciplines can enhance enterprise and mission effectiveness and will gain an understanding of how to manage scope, digital and traditional work products, risk, and teams of diverse talents.

FAQ

There are two options for taking a course remotely.

The Live-Online courses are scheduled to begin at 7 am Pacific / 10 am Eastern to accommodate learners across the US. Significant flexibility is given for breaks and working from home conditions. The classes are delivered remotely via scheduled Zoom sessions. If you miss a session, you may watch the recording at a time that fits your schedule. During the week before each session, you will receive an online meeting invitation.

Online On-demand video courses are pre-recorded lectures you can watch on your own schedule. You may interact with your instructor(s) through the Moodle Learning Management System. During the week before each session, you will receive an online meeting invitation.
