Research and education in the Department of Systems Science deals with a new and unified approach to varied technological problems from the standpoint of systems science. In particular, the approach requires the study of complex systems in the light of self-regulation, self-organization, and self-production. This is closely related to the need for study of the rapid growth in intelligent systems, and also in global systems such as world-wide computer networks. Emphasis is also placed upon the understanding of complicated mutual interactions, hierarchical systems, distributed or parallel self-determination, human-machine interfaces, biomedical engineering, and medical information systems. The Department supplies a variety of programs for solving pertinent system problems: the analysis, design, control of systems, decision making and simulation algorithms and techniques, as well as their bases in applied mathematics, application software, and hardware.
The Department has three regular divisions and one cooperative
division. Each division consists of a few chairs. Thirty graduate
students are admitted into the Master's program, and 13 into
the Doctoral program.
