Sophisticated Analysis Drives More Informed and Confident Policymaking
Solving complex problems often requires the expertise of multiple disciplines. Each expert has specific knowledge through which they view both problems and solutions. System dynamics models allow experts to analyze the interplay of their collective recommendations, collaborate on problem solving, and anticipate the potential consequences of their policies before implementing them.
At WPI, the study of system dynamics gives students the ability to use computer simulation modeling in any organization or industry. Courses are focused on the use of simulation modeling for experimental analysis and are aimed at solving a variety of problems in the private and public policy domains. Our graduates go forth with the knowledge to develop solutions to complex social problems in a variety of application areas.
