We seek to improve and understand the ways in which we can design and manage socio-technical engineering systems.

Socio-technical engineering systems increasingly shape modern lives. Our focus is to understand and improve the ways in which we design and manage these systems.

What is the most effective way of providing healthcare to a population? How can we improve critical infrastructure? What are the capabilities needed for modern digital production? Can energy be distributed in a smarter way? These are the types of questions that occupy the minds of the academic staff in the Engineering Systems Design Section.

At the forefront of design and innovation for people in the digital era, the Engineering Systems Design research section undertakes fundamental and applied research to generate knowledge that improves the engineering systems design process in designing and managing of large-scale socio-technical systems such as megaprojects. Human behaviour, uncertainty, risk and complexity are core themes.

The Engineering Systems Design research section is eager to collaborate with a wide range of partners. Through our many partnerships with leading international universities, companies and public authorities, we have developed new and ground-breaking methodologies and tools on behavioural- and resilient design, operation and management of engineering systems health.

If you are interested in a partnership or opportunities to collaborate with us, contact our Head of Section here.
