<正>This paper dissertates the great significance of application of the systems engineering and systems management to modern marine engineering management. The systems engineering is an infant and multi-field subject, which combines theories with practices of natural science, social science and systemic means. Modern mathematics and computers are used as mediums to achieve the opdmal management of system. Modern marine engineering management absorbs essences of the systems engineering and regards engine machine, manager, inside and outside environment as an integral. It studies not only the material system but also the influence of the social system focusing on people and environment. By optimising the management to ensure safe navigation and prevent ocean from pollution, the paper also uses the method of the systems engineering to establish the model of modern marine engineering management.
