Systems Science & Applied Mathematics

Systems engineering is the field of specialization within engineering that uses advanced mathematical methods to model physical systems, and to develop techniques for system optimization and control. Systems engineers are experts at analyzing complex systems and effectively coordinating their many different components. Systems engineers design, develop, manage and optimize complex systems including electrical systems, information systems, biological systems, quantum systems, economic models, financial systems, environmental systems, telecommunication networks, transportation networks, project management, and aerospace systems.
