We want to strengthen systems engineering education by providing a means by which students/practitioners, employers and educators can understand the competencies addressed in Systems Engineering graduate programs, thus:
We want to create a common place for employers, university programs, and students/practitioners to interact, for the benefit and improvement of all.
The lack of an overall SE academic community coupled with an inconsistent view of SE in practice has resulted in the lack of coherence in curriculum and educational programs which has impacted SE education’s ability to meet the rapidly changing needs of its practitioners, threatening SE with a lack of relevance.
The SEEE team is dedicated to creating a collaborative ecosystem in which systems engineering educators can interact with SE employer partners, practitioners, and students to search, compare, define, and exchange program objectives and resources to enhance educational impact. This exponential pace of societal and technical change underlies the need for SEEE, and also demands that we design an adaptive resource that can stay one step ahead of the surrounding ecosystem.
Underlying the collaborative effort is a desire, while preserving the uniqueness of SE programs that speak to particular varieties of students and professions, to enhance commonality among programs where it is beneficial, and establish a community-supported ideal of systems engineering education that will eventually create some commonality in the meaning of a systems engineering certificate and graduate degrees among employers and students, and thereby enhance the value of all of our programs.
Central to SEEE is a web portal, seee.org, which will be used by students/practitioners, universities and employers. Every user has a data profile to describe themselves:
Every user can learn from the portal and up their own game:
