Modeling and Systems Analysis

 

Former students Micah Jasper and Venu Kandiah examine water distribution maps.

This program trains students in mastering fundamentals in systems methodologies as well as in applying these methods in conjunction with contemporary computing tools to analyze, identify efficient alternative solutions, and develop insights to engineering design and public sector planning problems. Multidisciplinary research investigations are conducted in an array of topics related to management of air sheds, surface and ground water systems, watersheds, coastal systems, solid waste, and environmental processes.
