Systems Engineering is an engineering field that takes an interdisciplinary approach to product development. Systems engineers analyze the collection of pieces to make sure when working together, they achieve the intended objectives or purpose of the product. For example, in automotive development, a propulsion system or braking system will involve mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and a host of other specialized engineering disciplines.
A systems engineer will focus on making each of the individual systems work together into an integrated whole that performs as expected across the lifecycle of the product.
