Abstract [en]

Training and educating Systems Engineers is a key activity for any organization developing complex heterogeneous systems. Ideally, the regional/national academic community will providecourses and education programs facilitating for the needs of industry and society. However, Systems Engineering is not a traditional academic subject and despite the growing academic interest in the subject there are many regions with no dedicated academic courses and programs in the subject.

This paper presents experience from introducing Systems Engineering via a capstone project course in a mechatronics master’s program at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden. Systemengineers from industry give an industry-developed Systems Engineering course, as part of a capstone course. We believe that the approach is novel and can serve as a mechanism for introducing Systems Engineering to both students and lecturers in the academic world, who have no previous exposure to the subject. Moreover, student feedback indicate that having lecturers with industrial experience was highly appreciated, making the activity a worthwhile branding investment for industry as well.
