What Learners And Companies Are Saying

More than 6,300 professionals have taken this program and are now making better engineering decisions

SysEng_Siddharth

Siddharth Kshirsagar, System Performance Engineer, Cummins Inc.

"Architecture and Systems Engineering Professional Certificate has motivated me about the need of system engineering in our daily work life. No matter in which field you are working, Systems Engineering techniques and principles can be easily applied to have better credibility and reliability about your results and predictions.”

SysEng_MichaelUy

Michael UY, Senior Principal Engineer, Northrup Grumman

“It was a great program with many tangible working tools that were immediately applicable to projects I had going on during my time in the certificate program.”

SysEng_Neena

Neena Rajan, Engineering Project Manager, Siemens - Healthcare

"If I had to borrow one quote to summarize what I gained from this course, it would be the quote by Lou Holtz: "It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it". I learned how to "carry" the weight of complex problems effectively by applying "Systems Thinking". Thank you, MIT for offering this program."

SysEng_Ron

Ron Aditya, Spacecraft GNC Engineer, Lockheed Martin

"This program has helped me develop the system level perspective necessary to decompose complex system architecture problems and solve them in ways that enable rapid prototyping to reach the optimum."

SysEng_Martin

Martin Ryschka, Production Manager, Allgaier de Puebla, Mexico

"During my time studying for the MBSE course, I realized that the architecture of models begins where the engineering part ends."

SysEng_Jorge_Samayoa

Jorge Samayoa, Senior Mechanical Engineer, Georg Fischer Signet LLC

"I believe [my new knowledge] will increase our ability to assure and deliver quality to our customers, streamline our development process and improve our ability to conceive and configure new product offerings."

SysEng_Lori_Strange

Lori Strange, Program Manager, BAE Systems

"I can definitely say that I have learned more about Systems Engineering, decomposing a system, architectural frameworks, and roles of the System Architect. The videos were easy to understand, easy to follow and kept me engaged using real-life examples. They broke up the monotony of constantly reading."

SysEng_Nick_Luther

Nick Luther, Staff Engineer, Plexus Corp

"This course provides a structured way of thinking which I can apply to frame architectural and other critical decisions."

SysEng_Mike_Richey_2-1

Michael Richey, Chief Learning Scientist, Associate Technical Fellow, The Boeing Company

"The certificate [program] blends industry and academic expertise and represents a scalable solution for employers."

SysEng_Clayton_Smith

Clayton Smith, Aerodynamicist, General Atomics

"I had high expectations and they were adequately met! The content was just what I'd hoped."

SysEng_Barry

Barry O'Reilly, Founder, Black Tulip Technology

"I loved the course, even if it was intimidating to study with so many “real engineers”. I’m using what I learned to change the way we do architecture in software systems."

SysEng_Jordan

Jordan Tuzsuzov, Chief Engineer, Visteon Corporation

"How to think holistically for the system, to design, model, compose and decompose it - this is what I have learned with MIT's "Architecture and Systems Engineering". And I am applying this knowledge in my daily work ever since."
