Systems EngineeringEdit

is a multi-disciplinary profession that treats design from a systems perspective. Systems Engineers are employed to manage the architectural development of complex systems that involve multiple engineering disciplines. For example; the engineering of the space shuttle required Software, Electrical, Mechanical, Civil and Chemical Engineers. Systems Engineers were employed to partition the work appropriate to the various disciplines. A logical architecture was created and each logical component was assigned to be implemented as hardware (electrical, mechanical), civil, chemical or software.
