About

The brain, the immune system and the formation of clouds, are all examples of complex adaptive systems comprising of many interacting components, often non linear and dynamic, leading to multiple levels of collective structures and organization. The Complex Adaptive Systems programme is delivered by Chalmers University of Technology.

Overview

The Complex Adaptive Systems programme is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.

Inspired by complex adaptive systems in nature, several new methods for information processing have emerged: artificial neural networks resemble neurobiology; genetic algorithms and genetic programming are based on evolutionary processes in nature; the construction of artificial life, the design of autonomous robots and software agents are based on the behaviour of living systems.

Career 

Training in "computational engineering" teaches students to model and analyse complex systems and the computer modelling and analytical skills acquired in the programme open up a wide range of possibilities on the employment market, in software development and consulting, in research and development, management, and in the financial sector.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Stochastic optimization algorithms
  • Artificial neural networks
  • Complex systems seminar
  • Computational biology
