About the School of Systems and Enterprises

The School of Systems and Enterprises provides interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary education and research rooted in systems thinking.  We focus on applying a "systems approach" to better understand the nature of problems and opportunities, and to conceive novel concepts and solutions that achieve breakthrough results across a wide range of domains, including defense, homeland security, intelligence, nuclear weapons, communications, space, infrastructure, finance and business solutions.  While maintaining an emphasis on technical systems, we pay particular attention to the interplay between these systems and the human enterprises that design and develop them, operate and use them, and sustain and maintain them.  Our research and education are grounded in a deep understanding of the state of practice in real-world applications and we are committed to transferring new knowledge that can be utilized by practitioners to enhance their effectiveness.
