Complex Systems Research Project B - CSYS5061

Year - 2018

The research pathway project aims to provide: (a) analytical and computational skills for modelling systems characterised by many interacting heterogeneous variables, (b) adequate programming skills for simulating complex systems. It is aimed at developing a pathway to a research career. The student will work individually on an assigned open-ended research project, focussed on modelling a complex problem or delivering a novel solution. The concepts covered depend on the nature of the project. The project could be directly tied to student's area of specialisation (major), or to their vocational objectives or interests. Students with expertise in a specific industry sector may be invited to partner with relevant team projects. The project outcomes will be presented in a thesis that is clear, coherent and logically structured. The project will be judged on the extent and quality of the student's original work and particularly how innovative, perceptive and constructive they have been in developing and applying cross-disciplinary complex systems concepts. As the result, the student will develop capability for modelling complex systems, from the identification of the relevant variables and interactions to the analysis and simulations of the predictions, having learnt the conceptual and methodological tools (techniques and algorithms) for the analysis and inference of complex models.

Courses that offer this unit

Non-award/non-degree study If you wish to undertake one or more units of study (subjects) for your own interest but not towards a degree, you may enrol in single units as a non-award student. Cross-institutional study If you are from another Australian tertiary institution you may be permitted to undertake cross-institutional study in one or more units of study at the University of Sydney.
