To participate in the Architecture and Systems Engineering program, you will need to meet certain technical requirements. The courses in this program have been designed to engage participants in models and methods to manage complex systems, without the need for substantial coding experience or proprietary coding packages. Here are the technical requirements:
Microsoft Excel: You should have the ability to download and run Microsoft Excel files with macros. While you may be able to view the files in other software, the macros will typically only work in Microsoft Excel. This is an important requirement as Excel is used for various activities throughout the course.
Microsoft PowerPoint: You should have the ability to download and edit Microsoft PowerPoint files. There are several programs available that can accomplish this, so you can choose one that suits your preferences or existing software.
PDF Reader: You should have the ability to download and read PDF files. A PDF reader application is necessary to access course materials provided in this format.
- Matlab: In some instances, optional links to models are provided in the course. These models may be available as Matlab files. However, Matlab is not required for the course, as these links are optional. You will still be able to fully engage in the course without Matlab.
Internet Connection: Access to the course materials requires a stable internet connection, as videos are only available via online streaming and cannot be downloaded for offline viewing.
Web Browser: Our courseware works best with current versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Internet Explorer version 11 and above is also compatible. For the best experience, it is recommended to use an up-to-date version of Chrome. If you do not have Chrome installed, you can download it for free from the official website.
Please keep in mind any restrictions or firewall settings that may be in place within your company or organization regarding content viewing. Ensuring that your system meets these technical requirements will help facilitate your participation in the Architecture and Systems Engineering program and ensure a smooth learning experience.
