Systems engineering centre aims to create future leaders

02 October, 2010

A multi-disciplinary centre intended to advance systems engineering in the UK, is being created at Imperial College, London. Although the Centre for Systems Engineering will focus mainly on the construction sector, it will encompass the full spectrum of systems approaches from data networks in mechanical and electrical engineering, through to low-carbon energy technologies.

The centre is being funded by the UK’s largest privately-owned engineering enterprise, Laing O’Rourke, as part of a multi-million pound collaboration with the college.

The Centre will be a focus for innovative research and teaching, using the insights to deliver greater value in the disciplines of mechanical and electrical engineering, building services and manufacturing systems.
A two-year part-time Masters course in Systems Engineering will be launched in October 2011, aimed at creating intelligent, challenging leaders with the skills to drive the industry forward.

The Centre, led by the new Laing O’Rourke Professor in Systems Engineering, Professor David Fisk, will also deliver undergraduate education, PhD and post-doctoral research and executive education.
