If you're not sure what systems engineering is or what it takes to be a systems engineer, this is a good starting journey for you. This journey gently introduces some of the more important concepts within systems engineering. Hopefully, by the end you'll be interested enough to check out some other more-complete resources on the topic.
By the way, I created this journey to demonstrate how you don't necessarily have to write introductions to each of the resources. This is just a list of resources that I think stand on their own. So, if you're thinking about creating your own journey just know that it can be a simple playlist like this one.
