ARCHITECTURE AND SYSTEMS ENGINEERING: 

Models and Methods to Manage Complex Systems

 

Our world runs on increasingly complex systems. Engineers face a critical challenge in designing, managing, and optimizing these systems for the rapidly changing products of tomorrow.

 

Employing industry case studies and the latest in systems thinking from MIT, this four-course certificate program explores models and methods in systems engineering. You will gain a knowledge base in complex systems, analysis of complex systems, and model management that will impact how you approach and solve problems. By the end of the series, you'll be able to frame systems architecture as a series of decisions, which can be actively sorted, managed, and optimized to suit you and your organization's needs.
