This article is for the Knowledge Unit. For the Specialization Area, see Systems Security Engineering, Specialization Area

The intent of the Systems Security Engineering Knowledge Unit is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the skills necessary to participate in the development of large scale systems. Students will understand that techniques, methods, and issues involved across the entire system life-cycle, from requirements identification and analysis, through various levels of design, implementation, testing and operation/maintenance.


To complete this KU, students should be able to:

  1. Analyze system components and determine how they will interact in a composed system.
  2. Analyze a system design and determine if the design will meet the system security requirements.


  1. Design of testing
  2. Testing methodologies
  3. Emergent Properties
  4. Systems Engineering
  5. System Integration
  6. Make or Buy Analysis
  7. Systems Security Analysis
  8. Enterprise system components
