Requirements-Driven System Design Process

After managing the development of two electric racecars over the past two years, I have noticed that the number of students who graduate with solid understanding of the system engineering design process is far and few between. This process is at the core of every engineering project and ultimately drives development forward. All engineers should know how the system design process works, not just project managers.
