Systems Engineering

Systems Engineering

Systems research encompasses the analysis and optimization of system-wide behavior of (i) chemical and biological systems, (ii) chemical, materials and energy processes, and (iii) supply chains of fuels and chemicals. It is synthetic and integrative in nature and relies on fundamental advances in the underlying science and mathematical and computational methods to decipher complex interactions and design for desired performance. CEMS faculty lead pioneering research efforts in mathematical modeling and simulation, process design, synthesis, optimization and control, and systems biology.
