Successful design requires good decisions in the presence of uncertainty and competing goals.
A key design requirement of successful products is their reliability. Often, performance and cost requirements drive product designs to possess relatively small margins of safety.
Since materials degrade with time, the resulting product life is finite. Engineers are challenged to design the product to ensure predictable reliability while optimally achieving the goals of performance and cost.
This Reliability and Decision Making in Engineering Design MicroMaster Program offered by EdX in collaboration with Purdue University - PurdueX will benefit a wide range of practitioners and active learners, whether entry level engineers or transitioning into engineering management roles.
The learning outcomes of this program will have applicability to products across all major engineering disciplines including automotive, aerospace, biomedical and electronics industries. This MicroMasters program from the best ranked online Mechanical Engineering Master’s degree program will prepare the student for leadership roles in product development or engineering management.
