Integrated Systems Design and Dynamics (M.S.)



The Integrated Systems Design and Dynamics graduate degree provides students with a senior level systems-based STEM education. Using technical cybernetics, the graduate degree is focused on the planning, architecture, design, and development of highly integrated machine learning systems, autonomous systems, aerospace systems, space systems, cybernetic systems, cyber and cyber-physical systems. Students will learn how to design and develop technologically complex systems using various integrative modeling and simulation techniques. Students will be immersed in the system dynamics discipline leading to the application of this framework towards the operationalization of complex technological systems across multiple domains.
