Systems Engineering

The Systems Engineering team teaches and studies methods for complex system analysis and synthesis. It sees modern systems as blends of interacting socio-technical elements in various domains (technological, economic, social, environmental, etc.) during a system's lifetime – from design to utilisation.

The team develops interdisciplinary quantitative and qualitative approaches to the design and synthesis of complex systems.

The research addresses the following topics:

  • Systematic methods for system conceptual design (TRIZ and other algorithms for conceptual design support, automated data/text mining, patent/paper data processing)
  • Modelling and simulation of complex systems (mathematical modelling, simulations, scenario analysis)
  • Optimisation (methods for system parameter optimisation, optimisation of structures)
  • System control (control and management design, programme and feedback control, control quality)
