Program description

The PhD in systems engineering is a transdisciplinary graduate program offered by the Polytechnic School, one of the Fulton Schools. The program is aimed at advancing the understanding of complex engineering systems, where these systems are inclusive of technological aspects as well as social, cultural, environmental, and other interacting components that impact the input, output and interactions within a system.

The program will prepare students to identify, model, analyze, interpret, optimize and manage the multidimensional interactions of the ever-increasing complexity of modern societal and technological challenges. The core provides the foundation for systems thinking, systems identification, systems modeling and systems design and analysis using diverse disciplinary methodological approaches. Students in this doctoral program will use the capacity to evaluate complex systems and a depth of mathematical maturity to study problems for which complexity is impeding progress.
