A Systems Approach to Global Engineering

This course is designed to be the capstone technical elective course for the Undergraduate Certificate in Global Engineering but is also open to graduate students as an elective course (please check with your individual academic advisor).  The purpose of the course is to introduce engineering students to the global context in which engineers are asked to operate in the 21st century. The course also aims at introducing students to system dynamics tools and other decision-making tools (network analysis, agent-based modeling, etc.) necessary to analyze the uncertainty and complexity inherent in global projects.
