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:


Call for New Research Proposals

This is a call open to all faculty and research staff at SERC Universities for research proposals. These research proposals will be assessed for funding from the SERC Core funds and other sponsor funding sources as incubator research projects. The need for new project incubation is an integral part of the SERC 2019-2023 Technical Plan.

Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER) 2019

Stevens Institute of Technology and Virginia Tech present the 17th Annual Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER). CSER has become the primary conference for disseminating systems engineering research and germinating new research ideas. Its primary objective is to provide a common platform for academia, industry, and government to present, discuss, and influence systems engineering research, practice, and education.
