Research Centers and Laboratories

Center For Complex Systems and Enterprises

The Center for Complex Systems and Enterprises (CCSE) focuses its research on four key domains – Healthcare Delivery, Financial Systems, Urban Resilience and National Security. This trans-disciplinary center mobilizes the research vision, experience, talent, creativity and capabilities across Stevens and many of our collaborators. These collaborations foster new research and education in systems science and engineering to enable deep understanding of complexity and create innovative approaches to managing complexity. Results include powerful technologies, tools and solutions to address complex issues in the domains of healthcare delivery, urban resilience, financial systems and national security.
