Systems Engineering (SE) has been initially developed to manage large complex system development in the defense or aerospace industry. As the complexity of product increase, the product development approaches evolved accordingly. Complex architectures have to be developed including multiple disciplines of engineering (software, electronics, mechanics etc..). Automotive industry moved to SE about 15 years ago, medical devices industry had been implementing such models thanks to instruction of accreditation agencies and general industry is also transforming their processes to address complex solution that add value to their customers. Moreover, some companies started to apply Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) in their processes to validate requirements and architectures. MBSE tools have been maturing since a decade, yet MBSE value proposition is not clearly agreed within industry and adoption remains slow. To face these challenges, it seems important to introduce Engineering Students to a complete view of SE including the benefits and technics of MBSE.

In this paper, we discuss the question of what competencies in Systems Engineering should be addressed within Industrial Engineering Master curriculum in Grenoble school of Industrial Engineering and Management. Since many dimensions are already addressed within the curriculum, modifications of some courses have been implemented to introduce MBSE. Highlight in Requirement Engineering modelling and architecture are presented and argued. Mapping with Graduate Reference Curriculum for Systems Engineering students outcomes is presented and pedagogical choices through project and case studies are discussed. Feed back from experience on learning outcomes are given.
