Course Description

The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a modeling language designed for systems engineering and based on the UML. This two day course begins with an introduction to general modelling concepts that feeds into a gentle introduction to the background of SysML and its relation to the UML. The key concepts of structural and behavioral modelling are covered in some detail through interactive, example-led sessions that complete the first half of day one. The second half of day one introduces each of the 9 SysML diagrams and 3 cross-cutting notations, along with some examples of how they may be used in real-life situations. Day two is a workshop session in which delegates put into practice the knowledge acquired on day one.

Course Objectives

  • To provide an awareness of the principles and concepts inherent in Modeling
  • To describe the structure and content of SysML
  • To enable attendees to appreciate SysML modeling techniques
  • To give attendees experience in modeling with SysML

Attendees Will Learn

  • Principles of structural and behavioral modeling
  • Essential SysML concepts, terminology and notation
  • The purpose and use of all SysML diagrams
  • How SysML diagrams are organized and the relationships between diagrams


  • An understanding of systems engineering principles and concerns

Who Should Attend

  • This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to learn about the System Modeling Language, whether because they are to use the SysML or because they need to be able to understand system models producing using the SysML, and who wish to gain experience in SysML modeling.

Attendees Receive

  • Copies of all course slides (bound and electronic)
  • Informational laminates which detail the SysML diagrams and show how they are related
  • A copy of the book ‘SysML for Systems Engineering’ by Prof. Jon Holt & Simon Perry

Course Format

Much of the course involves presentation of key principles and concepts, explained through worked examples and discussion with attendees. Day two consists of a mixture of presentations and tutor-led group-based workshops.
