What is Systems Engineering?

Systems engineering is a scientific discipline developed in recent years, which concerns the various scientific and applied tools required to develop technology. In addition to their specific expertise, a systems engineer or physicist requires multidisciplinary engineering knowledge, a system-wide perspective, and a multidisciplinary integrative ability in planning, engineering, and project management. Due to the major attention given to systems engineering in Israel and worldwide, there is increasing demand for professional systems engineers who can lead technological development within complex multidisciplinary projects
