Systems and Information Engineering: Maximizing the value of data to produce more efficient, sustainable and powerful systems and decisions.

Many of the new technologies being introduced today hold the promise of substantial societal benefit if we successfully apply the technologies to solve real-world problems, such as treating and curing diseases and protecting critical systems from cyber attacks. In our department, we push the boundaries of knowledge in our three core areas—human interaction, optimization and secure control, and information modeling—to improve performance across the range of human activity. Newly developed approaches have produced advances in domains as varied as aviation safety, juvenile diabetes, manufacturing, precision medicine and surgery. Through all our work, we seek to benefit society by fostering safety, efficiency and sound decision-making.
