UCL Centre for Systems Engineering


Short Courses-old


What we offer

UCLse offers a range of open short courses to promote individual and corporate development in:

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 are run in London typically on, or near, the UCL campus - a short walk from Euston station.

Application process

In order to apply for a short course, please fill out an application form and return it to n.magennis@ucl.ac.uk.

Our courses are non-residential. You will need to arrange your own accommodation in London if necessary.
