Applying a Robust Design Approach to Assessing Systems Engineering Education: A Case Study
Select from one of the case studies below (or an alternative case study that is approved by the advisor) and perform an assessment of the systems engineering education provided, using the robust design approach provided (or another approved assessment approach).
SE Experience accelerator Any existing undergraduate, graduate, PhD programs In-house training program
The analysis should address:
A comparison of different delivery modes (semester based, module based, hybrid, online, etc.) and/or; A comparison across different levels of assessment (for example using Kirkpatrick's levels)
