Our Students Say It Best

Information, processes, and insight into the linkages of the functional and physical architectures is extremely beneficial to my current role supporting the DCGS-A program office as a SE.

Student,
Northrop Grumman Corporation

This has been an excellent program! I will recommend it to ALL of my system engineering friends and colleagues. Thanks!

Student,
TASC

Best course I have taken in years! Well executed and relaxed learning environment.

Student,
SAIC

This was an excellent course! It has provided me with training that I am able to immediately apply to my job. Thanks for all of the hard work.

Student,
Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding

I've held the title of Systems Engineer with my current employer, as well as past employers, but this course helped me appreciate all of the processes and methods that a true systems engineer implements when designing a system.

Student,

Pete is an excellent instructor - no matter how much you're paying him, double it!

Student,
Northrop Grumman Mission Systems

Excellent use of example scenarios, very comprehensive course.

Student, TASC



Professional Certificate In Systems Engineering

Reed has teamed with Old Dominion University to provide the first Professional Certificate in Systems Engineering in the Hampton Roads Area of Virginia. Private runs of the program have already been completed for the US Navy/SPAWAR Norfolk and for Northrop Grumman Newport News including attendees from Northrop Grumman Information Technology. This program supports the INCOSE Certified Systems Engineering Professional certification activities and also provides a "hands-on" approach to applying systems engineering skills. 

This Program Offers:


  • Detailed instruction of SE methods mixed with in-class exercises
  • Real-life examples incorporated throughout 
  • Group projects to conclude and demonstrate knowledge
  • Preparation for INCOSE CSEP exam
  • Eligibility to apply for graduate credit with ODU’s Master’s in Engineering Management (SE Focus) degree program
  • Customized schedule

An introduction to the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is included and guidance on preparing and applying for the Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) is provided. Practical application exercises allow participants to implement the skills gained during the course sessions. An introduction to the “system of systems” mentality and current viewpoints surrounding the terminology are included and use of technical reviews and technical performance measures (TPMs) for system development is applied to the system development process.
