UCL Centre for Systems Engineering


Short Courses

UCLse offers a range of open short courses to promote individual and corporate development in systems thinking, systems engineering and project management. 

We also deliver customised courses for organisations that want to tailor the content of their training or want courses delivered at their workplaces. 

system thinking workshop

Systems Thinking

This workshop provides an introduction to the benefits of this approach through developing an understanding of what systems are and their essential properties.

Managing Complex Projects

Systems Engineering

UCLse delivers a range of courses in systems engineering from introductions on a specific aspect or technique through to in-depth explorations of the subject. 

project management

Project Management

UCLse offers project management courses accredited by the APM, as well as those focused on developing technology and complex systems. 

Customised training

Customised training

We deliver tailored courses in systems engineering and project management to a range of industry clients. 

Delegates use our courses to learn new knowledge (such as what is 'systems thinking'), to plug skills gaps in their capability (such as how to deliver complex technology projects) or to develop their careers.

Our experience

Our courses are based on twenty years of executive education and Masters-level training in the areas of applying systems thinking and systems engineering, and managing complex technology projects.

Our practical experience is derived mainly from the space sector, where we have contributed to over two-hundred successful space science missions over the last fifty years. This experience has been consolidated in a number of principles of systems engineering management, which underpin all of our training.


Courses typically run in Bloomsbury, London on, or near, the UCL campus.

You can find more information about short course visas by visiting the UCL advice page.
