We signed up for the training as a small team of Melexis Systems Architects. All practitioners but not formally trained in Systems Engineering — and therefore speaking a different language as far as Systems Engineering is concerned. Our aim was to find common grounds: common terminology, approach and reasoning, while getting up-to-speed with the state of the art. The training fully addressed our expectations. We now have a strong foundation, backed by the INCOSE handbook, to grow further as a team, and develop the next generation of complex products with more confidence. The workshop at the end of each day deserve special praise: it really allowed us to make sense of the methodology.

Gaël Close, PhD, Melexis Technologies

My background is in requirements engineering and I recently attended SE-Training’s 3 day Systems Engineering Fundamentals course with the aim of expanding my general Systems Engineering knowledge. Mike and Sebastian are professional, competent and confident presenters who are clearly extremely experienced in both the theory and practical application of Systems Engineering. Between them they have worked in a number of different industries and it is clear that they have drawn on these experiences in creating a well-structured training course. The content provided a thorough overview of Systems Engineering, as well as including numerous real world examples and providing many tips and techniques that I’m sure I’ll use in my future work.

We covered a great deal of material, but there was always time for discussions and questions, and it was very interesting to hear about the Systems Engineering experiences of the other participants. A particular highlight for me was the workshop section at the end of every day, where we had the opportunity to try out the things we had learnt. The workshop tasks build on each other from day to day and it was helpful to reinforce understanding of the techniques as well as being a lot of fun!

I can thoroughly recommended this training.

Sarah Bostock, Bernafon

The Workshop is one of the best seen in many trainings (well prepared, enough time/attention given, logical link between exercises), an asset of the training!!!

Vincenzo Sacco, project Manager, Melexis Technologies

Drawing on his vast industry and teaching experience, Dr. Shaun West consistently delivers high energy, entertaining University courses which promote interaction and active learning amongst class participants.

Throughout the courses, fundamental theory concepts are explained through comprehensive inputs and supported by topical and relevant examples. Learning is further supported by the direct application of concepts with the use of case studies and group works. Results and findings are later discussed openly between Shaun and the participants, allowing for deeper and long lasting understanding.

Shaun’s courses promote fun, relaxed, and relevant learning- I can enthusiastically recommend them.

Rachel Cummings, Student, University of Luzerne

Joe Kasser's course was a huge help to acquire the full picture.

Niels’ Quality On Time approach is deceptively simple

Anonymous, R&D Manager, Ireland

I have never before absorbed so much information in such a short time. Normally such talks drain my energy. This time however, I felt energized

Anonymous, Developer, Netherlands

This is practical stuff we can start using immediately. I’ve heard many presentations, but this one was absolutely the best.

Anonymous, Systems Engineer, Israel

First I worked 60 hr a week. Now I work 40 hr a week, doing more, and having a family life.

Anonymous, Satellite Communications Engineer, Japan

I have taken many project management courses in my life. They all skipped issues like discipline, focus, permanent application of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, creating stakeholder value in short cycles, and consciously generating feedback. All problems Niels addresses are mentioned in books that seek solutions in numerous kinds of formal control mechanisms, which do not address the issues at the root of the problems. Niels does, and succeeds too.

Anonymous, Development Group Leader, Netherlands

First we tried Agile (XP) development. Result: over budget and over time due to informal and direct communication between stakeholders (wish list was too long and unmanaged).
Then we tried Waterfall with extensive initial documentation (CMM). Result: over budget and over time due to planning problems and changed requirements on delivery. Finally we tried Niels' approach. Result: implementation in an unusual short period of time; stakeholder participation much better; end result closer to stakeholder expectations. We keep using this approach.

Anonymous, Software Project Manager, Netherlands

"Jürg Meierhofer's pragmatic educational approach with theory and practice intertwined and many external guest lectures helps me to understand “the digital world” much better. ... This training course was the right education to bring me to my next career step from a BI Expert today to a Digital Officer of Digital Transformation in the near future.“

Anonymous, Senior BI Consultant

Patrick Link supported us with the development of a tailor-made methodology framework for our proprietary innovation program.

In interactive workshops, he uses hands-on training to teach the methodology and uses an actual business case to further familiarize the course participants with each step of the program.

Roland Künzi, Head of Operations, ALSO Schweiz AG

As a Business Engineering student at the HSLU I had the pleasure to attend Shaun Wests courses and in addition work in several different projects with him as advisor.

Shaun West has a unique ability to empower students and their projects by supporting them in a very constructive way.

Stoll Oliver

Experienced trainers with good practical examples.

Thomas Schaub, ABB

Both trainers have a lot of experience indifferent industries which is of high value.

Roger Newbould, ABB

Content of the course was a good balance between « overview » & « detail ». Overall great training and well worth the money.


Presentation of the course was professional and easy to follow. I gained insight in to new methods and tools. Thanks for the course, I really appreciated it!

Marco Habegger, Axetris

Presentation of the course was dynamic and fun. Questions were all followed up even when answers were not immediately known.

Javier Bilbao, Melexis

Presentation of the course was very dynamic and interactive with very few dead times. It is clear that the trainers are masters of the methods.

Gael Close, Melexis

Course was overall very well prepared with a lot of examples drawn from hands-on experience. Trainers were very experienced


...yesterday we concluded the two-day course on system reliability with Sebastian and I left with more knowledge and confidence in reliability. The applications of the theory during exercises has been paramount to me.
