This live online 3-day course focuses on the concepts, principles and practices of Systems Engineering to give attendees both understanding and specific knowledge to apply Systems Engineering to the design of complex systems.
This course is derived from our most popular offering; the 5-day Systems Engineering course. The 5-day course, tailored to suit each client-company has been delivered to many of the world’s leading engineering companies. Variants of the course have also been designed for non-engineering organizations, whose interest is in business and service systems.
Three-quarters of the 3-day course will be devoted to processes and tools that will allow attendees to:
Underpinning the “how to do” Systems Engineering content are two sessions that explain the rationale for Systems Engineering together with an examination of the Systems Thinking concepts that are the foundation of and the core competence of Systems Engineering. These sessions provide the necessary knowledge to understand the structure and logic of Systems Engineering.
With the Kolb learning cycle as the learning philosophy, a significant proportion of the course is set aside for exercises to reinforce the learning. A realistic case study is used to provide a practical focus for the course and enables the attendees to practise the tools and processes presented.
The 3-day course is aimed at:
The content of the 3-day Systems Engineering Fundamentals Course is given below:
The three-day course will be delivered by three of BHW’s most experienced Tutors.

Stuart is the Director of Burge Hughes Walsh Limited. His early career was as a Flight Control Engineer with British Aerospace before becoming a Systems Engineer with CAP and GEC. He also, for over a decade, was an academic at Salford and Lancaster Universities. In 200o he was one of the founders of Burge Hughes Walsh.
Stuart is widely known in industry, the public sector and academia for his Systems Design and Systems Engineering expertise. Stuart is recognised for his pragmatic approach and his ability to explain how to do practical Systems Engineering.
For the last 20 years, Stuart has worked with many clients helping them improve their Systems Engineering. This has been through the design and delivery of training courses as well as coaching and facilitating individuals and project teams to use Systems Engineering in the design of complex systems. Stuart’s client list includes BAE SYSTEMS, Babcock, Irvin Shipbuilding Inc., MBDA, Rolls-Royce, DSTL, Qinetiq, GE, General Dynamics, BD, Abbott, Elekta, Dyson, Renishaw, Megger Instruments, ST Kinetics, Cooper-Standard Automotive, Vestas, Climeworks and the Waters Corporation to name a few.
Stuart is also a Six Sigma Master Black Belt with expertise in Design for Six Sigma and Robust Design.
John joined BHW in 2013, having had a successful career as a Systems Engineer for Rolls-Royce, General Dynamics and Airbus Defence and Space. His industrial career focused on requirements, system design and verification and validation. John’s industrial experience has led to the pragmatic but exacting approach of ensuring understanding before exploring and selecting solutions.
John is a Senior Consultant/Tutor in BHW involved in the design and delivery of training courses. He is also involved in coaching and facilitating individuals and project teams and has had particular success with Airbus in the design of manufacturing systems.
Keary has been employed by Burge Hughes Walsh for ten years and is one of the most experienced Tutor/Consultants. Having spent his early career in IT, Keary moved into process improvement before becoming a consultant with the Bourton Group. Here he developed his skills in improving process-based systems through Lean and Six Sigma. He also became heavily involved in Design for Six Sigma and Robust Design with Rolls-Royce and other clients. Keary is a Six Sigma Master Black Belt.
As more organizations are recognising the need to “engineer” and design their business systems, Keary brings unique knowledge and experience to the application of Systems Engineering to process and service design.
