Complex Systems Science and Engineering (Certificate Only)
Complex Systems Science and Engineering is a rapidly advancing field of research that investigates structural/dynamical properties of systems to obtain general, cross-disciplinary implications and applications. The relevance of its concepts and methodologies to real-world problems has attracted increasing attention from a range of areas, including systems engineering, organization management, data analysis, marketing, finance, medicine and healthcare, environmental management, homeland security and defense, education, and art and aesthetics. Consequently, there are increasing societal demands for personnel that have a solid understanding of complex systems and technical capabilities to model, analyze and manipulate such systems. Obtaining a Complex Systems Science and Engineering Certificate will thus help significantly enhance competitiveness in various professional and academic job markets. The certificate will be a strong endorsement for technical knowledge and skills as well as intellectual activity and interdisciplinary perspective. This certificate program will also serve as an accessible gateway to STEM-related interdisciplinary areas for those who currently major in humanities or other non-STEM disciplines.
