While diverse research interests are represented by the core faculty and affiliated faculty in the Department of Systems Engineering, the following areas of concentration combine graduate level research and curriculum:

  • Control, energy and mechatronic systems
  • Computational cancer biology
  • Compressed sensing
  • Cyber-physical system security
  • Network control
  • Robotics
  • Systems design and development

Other concentration areas are pursued as research focus areas, depending on student and faculty interest.

In keeping with the established tradition of research at UT Dallas, SYSE students are encouraged to collaborate with researchers in other programs in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and the Naveen Jindal School of Management. Related areas of interest include computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, bioengineering, computer engineering, operations management, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, and business management.
