Systems Engineering is a growing field that has also repeatedly found points of contact in teaching for many years. Especially in university education, Systems Engineering has become an important facet in the technical fields. The focus is on the development of technical systems, and thus technical competencies are often addressed in the foreground and deepened depending on the faculty. Immediate factors such as Systems Thinking, collaboration and communication are not explicitly addressed. In this paper we present our own approach in teaching Systems Engineering.
