Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC)
The Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC), a University-Affiliated Research Center 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. Led by Stevens Institute of Technology and principal collaborator, University of Southern California (USC), the SERC has engaged more than 400 researchers since its founding in 2008 – a community of broad experience, deep knowledge and diverse interests. SERC researchers have worked across many domains and industries, including finance, telecommunications, computing, transportation, in addition to defense, enabling them to bring broad perspectives to their research.
