ABOUT

The Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) strives to uncover fundamental principles and develop new methods and tools to model, design and manage highly integrated systems for improved efficiency.

CCES connects a new generation of students and scholars with MIT faculty and researchers, in a spirit of cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration, to tackle complex issues that can appear to be non-quantifiable, vague, overly complex or even unsolvable. Scholars and researchers work diligently to creatively solve engineering systems problems by integrating approaches based on engineering, computation and the social sciences using new framing and modeling methodologies.

The program aims to be a new leader in systems thinking and to assist in tackling societal challenges with a focus on sustainability, including social equity, economic development and environmental impact.
