A non-profit, national collaborative center supporting Digital Engineering and Workforce Development.
Our mission is to enable and accelerate the incorporation of Digital Engineering and Manufacturing into the workplace.
IDEA uses a helix framework approach to teach Model Based Systems Engineering.
IDEA sponsors education nodes in Research & Development communities that have a critical need for effective Systems Engineering workforces, creating MBE/MBSE centers of excellence.
What is SET?
IDEA has developed a curriculum known as Systems Engineering Technology (SET). Our SET curriculum will prepare a workforce of systems engineers equipped with the digital engineering skills necessary to enable future U.S. technology development. Systems are much more complex today and there is a great demand for systems engineers from organizations such as the Department of Defense, NASA and the Department of Energy. The SET program will address this demand and establish a workforce pipeline to enable trained systems engineers to make an impact.
A SET degree will give you the computer programming and database skills needed to build and maintain those models. Your role in maintaining the “single source of truth” will be pivotal in keeping the engineering teams on track and making progress.
