In this complex global society, developing products that fit stakeholder needs has become extremely challenging. In order to prepare undergraduates to deal with complexity especially in a global context, systems engineering approaches have been taught for the past 3 years in a summer grand challenge course in which the students design, build, test, and communicate a humanitarian design for a developing country. We have boiled down the entire system’s approach into four essential models: a stakeholder and feature model, an interactions model (black-box), a logical architecture (white-box), and a physical architecture. To create each of these models, every component is given a set of grammatical rules to help establish a broader definition of the requirement of the sub-component. This paper will focus on how we have adapted the traditional model-based system engineering content to make it more easily accessible and understandable by undergraduate students.
