Welcome

Why a Master’s degree in Complex Systems Engineering?

  • Because the purpose of engineering is to solve society’s problems.
  • Because today’s most critical problems involve complex systems, wherein physical, human and biological agents interact.
  • Because these problems cannot be analyzed from the perspective a single discipline.
  • Because the information revolution has increased the complexity of systems, but has also enhanced the ability to understand, model, predict and design.

Objectives

  • Develop the ability to carry out original research of excellence related to complex systems engineering.
