The Phd in Complex Systems Engineering (PCSE) is an interdisciplinary program that seeks to train researchers who can formulate, analyze and solve engineering problems involving complex systems wherein physical, human, biological and computational agents interact.
The purpose of engineering is to solve society’s problems. Today’s most critical challenges involve complex systems, wherein physical, human and biological agents that cannot be analyzed from only one discipline interact.
The information revolution has increased the complexity of systems, but has also enhanced the ability to understand, model, predict and design.
The main objective of the program is to train researchers who are able to formulate, analyze and solve engineering problems involving complex systems by integrating knowledge and methodologies from various disciplines, including mathematics, physics, biology, computer science or the social sciences.
Complex systems are considered to be those whose behavior depends not only on the properties of its constituent elements, but also that of new properties that emerge from the interaction between its parts.
The program is interdisciplinary and entails a systematically thought out range of courses and research workshops, and the writing of a doctoral thesis that represents an individual, original and independent contribution to the development of complex systems engineering.

The first year of PhD entails full-time study Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM and 7:30 PM with three hours of class daily on average. The following two or three years (depending on a case-by-case basis) will involve periodic corrections of the thesis. This being the case, students will schedule individual meetings with their respective thesis advisors.
September 1 to November 20, 2018 for the 2019 academic year.
Classes Begin: March 4, 2019 |Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m to 17:40 p.m
Our PhD is accredited, so students can apply for the grant from Conicyt. Learn more about requirements and application deadlines here.
