The virtual instructor led (VILT) is noted by the “V” after the course number.
Designed for senior DoD technical acquisition personnel, this course focuses on the application of technical skills within a typical DoD systems engineering environment. Participants are expected to have sufficient background knowledge of the DoD’s systems engineering management processes, knowledge of the application of systems engineering to each acquisition phase, and the capability to apply these concepts to complex technical management problems involving critical thinking. This two week course instructs students on how to lead engineering teams in the execution and technical risk management of complex, multi-disciplinary technical projects while promoting a holistic acquisition lifecycle perspective to defense system development. Its design combines lectures with extensive exercises, to cover a variety of topics including system security engineering, open architectures, reliability and maintainability.
