With a shortage of systems engineers projected in coming years, increasing the pool and capabilities of systems engineering talent is essential. Given the relatively small number of systems engineering undergraduate programs across the country, alternative strategies must be developed to bring systems engineering elements into the traditional engineering disciplines. In this paper, we report on our efforts to introduce systems engineering elements into an undergraduate multidisciplinary capstone design course.
