MIT, Boeing, NASA, and edX Offer MOOC

MIT, Boeing, NASA, and edX to launch online architecture and systems engineering program

MIT is collaborating with Boeing and NASA to develop a four-part online, certificate-based program: "Architecture and Systems Engineering: Models and Methods to Manage Complex Systems." The program aims to ensure that the engineering workforce has continual training and access to the latest knowledge and methods to design and develop products in a rapidly changing environment. The four courses, which will be delivered by MIT Professional Education via the edX platform, will marry the research and knowledge of MIT's world-renowned faculty with lessons and case studies in industry and government from Boeing and NASA professionals. Focused on modern complex systems from hybrid cars to aircraft, the program will teach how to frame system architecture as a series of decisions which can be actively sorted and managed. "Engineering practice is changing rapidly in tandem with the growth of software, driving incredible capability changes, but also causing enormous challenges managing complex development programs," says Bruce Cameron, director of the System Architecture Lab at MIT, and director of this program.
