The Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC)

A University-Affiliated Research Center (UARC) of the US Department of Defense, leverages the research and expertise of faculty, staff, and student researchers from more than 20 collaborating universities throughout the United States. SERC is unprecedented in the depth and breadth of its reach, leadership, and citizenship in Systems Engineering.


The SERC research portfolio is structured into four thematic focus areas:


Assist 2 Develop Present A: Systems Engineering Challenge for NASA

NASA Mission Architects need a library of SysML elements for common physical and functional elements that can be used across NASA missions. Show us your architecture and systems engineering modeling skills, to help develop common models that can be used for more effective and efficient systems engineering… and also have a chance to win some nice prizes. Individuals and teams are welcome to participate.

Systems Security Symposium 2020

This symposium attempts to address the convergence of cybersecurity, safety, and engineering with interest in the effective application of security principles, methods, and tools to complex systems such as cyber-physical systems, autonomous systems, transportation vehicles, medical devices, large IoT systems, and other systems of interest.

14th Annual IEEE International Systems Conference (SYSCON 2020)

The IEEE Systems Council facilitates interactions among communities of interest on system-level problems and applications, with the Annual IEEE International Systems Conference as a regular touch point. System-level thinking is essential in the world today, not only for technical systems, but also for society at large. The Council addresses the discipline of systems engineering, including theory, technology, methodology, and applications of complex systems, system-of-systems, and integrated systems of national and global significance.
