Systems of systems engineering education
System of systems engineering (SoSE) is a relatively new field of study as compared to other engineering disciplines and is often viewed as a mere extension of systems engineering, a relatively young discipline itself. As with all new disciplines, education in the emerging field is an important element of its development, or in some cases, its failure to develop. Education includes the domain within which the field of study exists and the requisite foundation for the associated body of knowledge. This paper reports on a tailored training programme in SoSE that has been designed to help provide a step–function increase in knowledge, skills, and abilities for the emerging workforce that work with systems of systems.
