[+]

This Systems Engineering programme has been developed as a practice-based systems engineering (PBSE) suite of courses where the University presents the theoretical background and participating industry organisations, in which the students are employed, provide opportunities to apply the material on real projects. The systems engineering world, as seen through the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), is moving from document-centric approaches to model-based systems engineering (MBSE). Many international projects are using MBSE and tools are widely available today. MBSE requires a curriculum that prepares a new breed of systems engineers. To develop MBSE skills there is a need to shift the focus from systems engineering processes and management to include a technical component which addresses the “how to” (skill). This programme facilitates this shift. Curriculum Outline/Modules taught There are six modules that form part of the PBSE programme: Introduction to systems engineering (prerequisite for other modules). Requirements analysis Architecture Systems engineering management Modelling and simulation Implementation, integration, verification and validation. Other postgraduate courses can be substituted for some of these courses. The courses are also offered as stand-alone short courses through the Transnet Centre for Systems Engineering based in the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment at Wits Closing dates 31 May 2015 31 October 2015 [-]

The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. [+]

MSc Degrees in Aviation. MSc in Aviation Safety The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. The areas of Aviation Safety or Aviation Security are closely related and the MSc Aviation Security / MSc Aviation Safety programmes contain five modules that are core to both and deal with common issues such as risk management, human factors, strategy, operations and planning. Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each programme therefore contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialisation is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area. By completing five core and three specialised modules, plus a subject area Project, students may obtain an MSc in either Aviation Safety or Aviation Security. If they wish to obtain a second MSc in the alternate specialisation on top of the first award, learners may complete the three additional specialised modules plus a second Project in the other subject area. Why enrol on this programme? The MASAS programme is one of very few degree programmes in the world to address those needs. The awards... [-]
