Let WPI help you on onboard or up-skill with an introduction to—and appreciation for—the art and science of SE Architecture

9 Micro-courses in total.

online | on-demand | stackable. 

Independent self-study at an affordable price.

Systems Engineering Architecture: Digital Badge Program is designed for those who are:

  • Interacting with an SE Architecture Team 
    • Imagine the importance of a shared vocabulary for a manager who has systems engineering architects reporting to them, or architecture stakeholders who need to communicate effectively for the development of system solutions.
  • New to Systems Architecture
    • New members of an architecture team can benefit from an introductory overview of systems architecting concepts and design approaches.
  • Curious about the Art and Science of Systems Architecting
    • Individual micro-courses such as Stakeholder Analysis are useful in all areas of systems engineering, and experienced architects can learn the latest frameworks (e.g., TOGAF 10).

A certificate of completion is issued after each individual micro-course:

  • Approximately 1 hour total lecture time
  • 4 instructional videos
  • A short quiz after each video
  • Complete all 9 to earn a digital badge!
