Center for Complex Engineering Systems

The Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) is a world-class international research program that strives to uncover fundamental principles and develop new methods and tools such that complex, highly integrated systems can be modeled, designed, and managed more effectively and sustainably.

CCES aims to seed a new generation of internationally experienced scholars and to excite and inspire a new generation of researchers and engineers to pursue complex systems as a research direction. In the spirit of cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration, one of the hallmarks of our research approach is to embrace intellectual risk, and to tackle issues that appear, at least in part, to be non-quantifiable, vague, overly complex or even unsolvable.
