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:


SERC Researchers Contribute to Textbook on Systems Engineering and Artificial Intelligence

The SERC would like to congratulate SERC Deputy Director Mr. Tom McDermott, who was an editor and author of the newly released "Systems Engineering and Artificial Intelligence". This textbook presents a set of collected papers from three symposia on artificial intelligence and systems engineering that were hosted jointly by the SERC, the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

SERC Researchers Work with Systems Engineering Community to Tackle Digital Engineering Metrics

Organizations are searching for guidance on measuring the value and benefits of DE and MBSE. For digital transformation to be successful, the systems engineering community needs a set of common guidance on what data to collect and what top-level measures can be used consistently across a variety of programs. SERC Researchers Tom McDermott and Alejandro Salado and PhD candidate Kaitlin Henderson are leading research focused on addressing that need.
