  • The Requirements Engineering Process and its component parts and their significance.
  • Managing Requirements and the Requirements Process.
  • Practical exercises for practitioners.
  • Discussion and reflective activities.

Who is it for?

Professionals, practitioners and managers involved in the discipline of Requirements Engineering, Systems Engineering and related activities. Professionals involved in the production of requirements.

"I found the Requirements Engineering module to be well structured, well presented, and more importantly, entirely relevant. I would highly recommend this module."

Brett Hands, MSc Graduate



On completion of the module and assignment work, you will be able to:

  • Understand Requirements Engineering concepts and techniques that form the basis for the process and practice of Requirements Engineering.
  • Appreciate the problems of practitioners engaged in the Requirements Engineering Process.
  • Comprehend the theoretical perspectives underlying the discipline.
  • Apply Requirements Engineering concepts and techniques to the development and construction of systems.
  • Select and demonstrate the use of a variety of Requirements Engineering approaches.
  • Requirements Engineering has been recognised by private, public and defense organisations as essential to development and business processes.

These courses provide a forum for a variety of organisations to meet, update skills and knowledge, and to identify best practice in Requirements Engineering.

The module will include lectures, group discussions, presentations and practical exercises. You will be expected to contribute to practical sessions and discussions through your prior work experience. Approximately 10-15 hours of pre-module work will be set, from directed activity and relevant materials. A post-module assignment will be set, utilising elements of the taught programme, to demonstrate that the learning outcomes have been met.
