Description

Engineering student organizations and students in engineering design courses often emulate processes typically seen in industry. However, they face challenges due to the projects’ condensed timeline, amount of funding, and irregular work schedules. One project management practice typically used in industry is systems engineering. This project evaluates and condenses systems engineering practices described in the NASA Systems Engineering Handbook to be used by engineering students. The different phases and major project reviews described by NASA were adapted and scaled to fit within the context of a one- or two-semester project.
