Course Description

The MSc in Systems Engineering and Innovation is designed to develop the next generation of technology champions for the mechanical and electrical (M&E) engineering of building services systems. It aims to meet the needs of students who wish to advance their knowledge of systems, and systems thinking over a two year intensive part time course. It focuses on the new systems engineering issues likely to confront conventional M&E building services systems in the next decade. An important component addresses the management of innovation needed to bring these new systems and concepts successfully into play. The course content is designed to be uncompromisingly challenging and would be suitable only for the most able students. At the personal level it will stretch students who have already shown their competence in traditional M&E services by exposing them to new unfamiliar systems, systems theory and new system component requirements. With a special emphasis on data networks, it is intended to give the student confidence to lead the significant revolution in M&E services already anticipated by major industrial players. The course content makes a special virtue of Imperial College's strengths in systems, networks and data network theory by drawing on resources across the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and innovation management at the Business School. Emphasis is placed on applying systems thinking to a wide range of technology, creating the conditions for successful innovation. The Course is offered as part-time over two years. It consists of fortnightly intensive modules spread over four terms. It is completed by a substantial dissertation that is expected to be of publishable quality in the engineering research literature. The dissertation will explore in greater depth an aspect of one of the technologies covered in the course and assess the business strategy that could bring the technology to the market place. Places on the course are strictly limited.
