This course is designed to explain the reasons for having such a plan, how the plan is developed and evolves as well as the typical content such a plan will contain. The course focusses on the thinking required in order to arrive at an appropriate set of engineering activities that will be captured in the plan.


The course is delivered as a combination of interactive taught sessions and group exercises. Each attendee will be provided with a hard copy of the taught material.


This course will be delivered by Ian Raper. Ian graduated from UCL in 2001 with a distinction in the Masters in Systems Engineering. Prior to joining UCL as a tutor in 2012 Ian had 22 years of experience in industry covering all phases of the engineering lifecycle from concepts and requirements through to integration, test and on-site acceptance.
