Graduate Program in Complex Systems (CXS)

PG guide icon

From March 2017 our Centre is involved in a postgraduate program in Complex Systems. Postgraduate guide is available here.

Modern smart cities, infrastructure and ecosystems are susceptible to abrupt, large-scale and disruptive dynamics. The Master of Complex Systems degree develops the skills to anticipate, control and manage the complexity of the unexpected.

This uniquely designed program provides the expertise to model, analyse and design resilient strategies for crisis forecasting and management in the areas of technological, socio-economic and socio-ecological systems. It is focused on quantitative modelling and computational simulation of system dynamics, using a broad range of methods from engineering, computer science, information technology, physics, mathematics, health, biology and business.

Leveraging the Centre's research strengths, the students have the flexibility to tailor their learning to professional interests with the choice of five specialisations: biosecurity, ecology, engineering, research methods, and transport.
