System in engineering refer to, engineering as well as computer science.
In engineering, the concept of a system is usually well defined. It is used in numerous different concrete contexts, and it is the subject of the basic engineering activities, such as: planning, design, implementation, building, and maintaining.
Systems engineering is also a generalized theoretical branch of the different engineering approaches and paradigms.
In computer science and information science, system could also be a method or an algorithm. An example will illustrate: there are systems of counting, as with Roman numerals, and various systems for filing papers, or catalogues, and various library systems. This still fits with various aspects which are connected together (in this case in order to facilitate the flow of information).
System can also be used referring to a framework, be it software or hardware, designed to allow software programs to run.
