SYS 4053: Systems Design I
Credits: 3
A design project extending throughout the fall semester. Involves the study of an actual open-ended situation, including problem formulation, data collection, analysis and interpretation, model building for the purpose of evaluating design options, model analysis, and generation of solutions. Includes an appropriate computer laboratory experience. Prerequisite: SYS 3021, 3060, and fourth-year standing in the Systems Engineering major.
SYS 4054: Systems Design II
Credits: 3
A design project extending throughout the spring semester. Involves the study of an actual open-ended situation, including problem formulation, data collection, analysis and interpretation, model building for the purpose of evaluating design options, model analysis, and generation of solutions. Includes an appropriate computer laboratory experience. Prerequisite: SYS 4053.
SYS 5581: Selected Topics in Systems Engineering
Credits: 3
Detailed study of a selected topic, determined by the current interest of faculty and students. Offered as required.
SYS 6014: Decision Analysis
Credits: 3
Principles and procedures of decision-making under uncertainty and with multiple objectives. Topics include representation of decision situations as decision trees, influence diagrams, and stochastic dynamic programming models; Bayesian decision analysis, subjective probability, utility theory, optimal decision procedures, value of information, multiobjective decision analysis, and group decision making. Prerequisite: SYS 6003, 6005, or equivalent.
SYS 6993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–12
Detailed study of graduate course material on an independent basis under the guidance of a faculty member.
SYS 7030: Time Series Analysis and Forecasting
Credits: 3
An introduction to time series analysis and forecasting. Topics include exploratory data analysis for time-correlated data, time series modeling, spectral analysis, filtering, and state-space models. Time series analysis in both the time domain and frequency domain will be covered. Concentration will be on data analysis with inclusion of important theory. Prerequisite: SYS 6005 or equivalent, SYS 4021 or equivalent.
SYS 9997: Graduate Teaching Instruction
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral students.
