The University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) is the fourth largest university in Norway, and one of the largest in technology. USN’s ambition is to be a regionally-anchored university that contribute to the green industry transition with applied research in areas like energy efficiency, CCS, hydrogen safety, and renewable energy. Systems Engineering offers a structured, interdisciplinary approach on how to design and manage complex engineering systems throughout the life cycle. Systems Engineering is a key to the rapid translation of knowledge into competitive products and services, and is particularly important for successful green transition. Systems Engineering techniques aids the engineers and designers to understand the main needs of the overall systems at an early stage. The result is reduced risks during the later phases of the systems’ life cycle.
