Dean’s Seminar Series: The Future of Systems

The Dean’s Seminar Series: The Future of Systems was a weekly lecture series will be held for Stevens undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administration and guests. As part of the School of Systems & Enterprises' (SSE) strategic focus and quest for knowledge about the evolution of systems, the series helped to keep students informed on the advances of faculty research and the mission of SSE as a leader in systems science and engineering. Each lecture has been recorded and made available on Kaltura for those who were unable to attend the live Zoom sessions.
