Using computer simulation modeling, you’ll see individual components and understand how policy changes can succeed or fail based on the existing system dynamics. A minor in system dynamics gives you valuable tools you’ll use in any workplace.

A minor in system dynamics gives you the foundation to understand how and why complex systems operate the way they do and how they change. From the smallest project team to the largest engineering organization, grasping how underlying independent factors form a complex and changing system gives you a valuable big-picture perspective needed to implement effective solutions.
