Model-Based Systems Engineering Certifications

March 2017

Four Darkblade Systems employees have completed the Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) certification through a 17-week, four-course program offered through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is an approach to systems engineering that emphasizes developing and using new models as the key domain focus for information exchange between developers, engineers and program managers.

From the MIT website:
As the pace of innovation accelerates, engineers around the world are tasked with designing, managing, and optimizing increasingly complex systems. Employing industry case studies and the latest in systems thinking from MIT, this four-course online certificate program explores models and methods in systems engineering. Students gain a knowledge base in complex systems, analysis of complex systems, and model management that impacts the approach to solving problems and keeping abreast of innovation.

By the end of the program, students are able to frame systems architecture as a series of decisions, which can be actively sorted, managed, and optimized to suit an organization’s needs.

The four courses in the certificate program are:

  • Architecture of Complex Systems
  • Models in Engineering
  • Model-Based Systems Engineering: Documentation and Analysis
  • Quantitative Methods in Systems Engineering
