ESD.83 Doctoral Seminar in Engineering Systems
Examines core theory and contextual applications of the emerging field of Engineering Systems. Focuses on analysis of scholarship on key concepts such as complexity, uncertainty, fragility, and robustness, as well as a critical look at the historical roots of the field and related areas such as systems engineering, systems dynamics, agent modeling, and systems simulations. Contextual applications range from aerospace to technology implementation to regulatory systems to large-scale systems change. Special attention to the interdependence of social and technical dimensions of engineering systems. Restricted to students enrolled in ESD doctoral program.
This class has no prerequisites.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
